3. From the map the article links to:

PBOT has restricted access to the neighborhood greenway system to local traffic only. The points on this map show where the signage is located. Neighborhood greenways are slow, calm residential streets that prioritize people walking and bicycling. The restrictions will allow people to travel safely and give space to others.




All essential vehicle trips are allowed. People who live, work, and need access to homes and businesses are allowed to drive on the street.
