Slow & Active Streets Logo 

The City of Sacramento held a limited time pilot of Slow & Active Streets from December 2020 through July 2021.

Throughout the planning process and afterwards, we received a lot of community feedback. In July 2021, the City published and distributed a community survey to evaluate the pilot.

Key survey findings are outlined below. City staff will make a presentation to Council in October. Sign up to be notified of that presentation HERE.

What is Slow & Active Streets?

Sacramento Slow & Active Streets is the prioritization of walking and biking by limiting through traffic on residential streets. Simple tools such as temporary signs and cones will be used to divert through traffic and slow drivers on these streets.

These partial closures of low speed residential streets are to encourage physically-distanced walking, biking, and skating in the roadways.
Driving accessibility will still be available for emergency responders, delivery drivers, and the neighborhood’s residents.
