Sunday Parkways: Portland's First Ciclovia-Style Street Closure

Closing Streets to Cars

Seems like Bogotá is quickly turning into a model. Its Ciclovia concept ("Every Sunday, some 70 miles of the city's roads are closed to vehicle traffic and turned over to its citizens, who come out in droves to walk, jog, skate and especially bike.") is spreading across the world, from Istanbul to New York City, and now Portland with what it calls Sunday Parkways.
