The COVID-19 pandemic has changed nearly every aspect of our lives, including the ways that we use city streets. University of Oregon professors Marc Schlossberg and Rebecca Lewis recently published the book “Rethinking Streets During COVID-19” to look at the ways that the pandemic has changed public use of streets around the world. We talk with Schlossberg about what they found, and what it could mean for the future of street usage.
