Dallas Slow Streets Pilot Now Accepting First 10 Applications

June 9, 2020



In response to COVID-19, the City of Dallas is announcing a pilot grogram called Dallas Slow Streets. The program allows neighbors to nominate their streets as Slow Streets with a 30-day permit. For this pilot, 10 lucky neighborhoods to receive the designation on a first-come, first-approved, first-served rotation.



Why a Slow Street?


The program is designed for a single block on low-traffic, neighborhood streets where the Slow Streets designation can provide a safer place for kids and families to bike, walk, play basketball, and be active in the street on their block.


One lane in either direction will be blocked by barricades and cones, Slow Streets temporary painted stencils will add reminders in the street itself throughout the block, and the individual submitting the application will serve as the "Block Captain" to field questions from neighbors. 


Streets will be closed to through-traffic, but remain accessible for local traffic, service and emergency vehicles, and deliveries.
