There is much planning underway to improve pedestrian safety in Philadelphia.  At the upcoming 20/20 Vision for Vision Zero Philadelphia conference,  attendees will learn from Akshay Malik of oTIS and Heather Martin of WSP-USA the results of an in depth analysis of pedestrian crashes and Alice Friedman will share the knowledge and experience that New York City DOT has gained in putting in all kinds of traffic calming and bicycle infrastructure to protect pedestrians.

Representatives of two organizations; Pat Murdock of the American Bible Society and Broader Mall Partners and Chris Dougherty of Delaware River Waterfront Corporation, will report on the capital projects they are leading that are designed to enhance pedestrian safety.

Good stuff! But, you have to register to hear their talks!  Please join us on March 7th at Temple University for our annual Vision Zero Conference.

Sarah’s foray into trail and bicycle advocacy began in 2004 when she became involved in the “Free Schuylkill River Park” campaign to preserve public access to the Schuylkill River Trail in Center City, now known as Schuylkill Banks. Since joining the Bicycle Coalition in 2006, she has been a key player in the Bicycle Coalition’s key accomplishments: the $23 million TIGER trail-building grant; naming and building out the Circuit; lobbying successfully for legislation mandating the inclusion of bike parking in new construction projects; Philadelphia’s Complete Streets policy; and coordinating research and analysis of several reports on bicycling in Philadelphia.
