Roads Closed, but Open!

If you don't visit The Oil Drum, you may not have seen this great video report on roads closed off to motor vehicles for a day in Portland, Oregon, to allow people to bike, walk, rollerblade and jog without worrying about traffic.

On the Climate Protection subcommittee of the city's Sustainability Task Force we are working up a plan to present to the City to do something similar.

I love this idea! It is more immediate than trails (paved especially, I'm an inline skater) and lots of cities do it.
