Why the Most Walkable City in America Has So Much Traffic
Let’s improve the roads that connect us all.
It's no secret that New York City is the densest and most walkable city in the country. On any given day, the city’s population doubles due to all the pedestrians, bicyclists, public transit riders, and drivers sharing the roads, sidewalks, and subways. Have you ever wondered how they all get along? And who’s responsible for the type of infrastructure it takes to really keep everyone safe—and on schedule?
In this installment of the Big Road Fix, we take a look at one of the most dangerous intersections in the Bronx and see how the city has worked to improve it.
The Big Road Fix is a new a video series from GOOD and Progressive exploring the evolving culture of transportation in cities across America. Together, we hope to improve the roads that connect us all.
