A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome:

The 2005 Campus Transportation Master Plan identified a series of goals for the campus which included restricting the core of campus from unauthorized vehicles and enhancing campus bicycle facilities. The Easy Streets Phase I project (2008) was successful in restricting the core of campus through the implementation of gates and boots. Traffic counts show a reduction in campus traffic by as much as 62%. Since the implementation of Easy Streets I, bicycle use on campus has increased exponentially.

Easy Streets ll seeks to facilitate safe bicycle use on the campus by introducing a series of designated bikeway corridors through the campus. In addition, restriction of vehicles along Tower Drive will enhance pedestrian safety along this corridor by minimizing pedestrian/vehicular conflicts. The final report was prepared by Walker Parking in 2009-10 and approved by the CMMTMT, FD&DC, and the LSU administration in May 2010.
