As municipal budgets tighten, public works departments across the country are substituting expensive engineering studies with short-term pilot projects they can execute in-house to quickly and cheaply test ideas and gain public approval. Join Stephen Edwards, Patrick Kennedy, as well as the MaineDOT, staff from the Lewiston Public Works, Fire, and Police Departments.
1. How to evaluate a street to determine if a short-term intervention can be accomplished to demonstrate how long-term investment can alter a street and provide for a range of users;
2. How to design an intervention and use materials effectively, considering safety of all street users;
3. How to work with multiple stakeholders to implement street projects and learn when to seek approval/sanction a project prior to install.
