More than two dozen pedestrians and bicyclists have died on Prince George’s County, Maryland, roads this year. That’s partly why groups that advocate for safer, more multimodal streets are hailing a package of legislation titled the “Walkable Urban Streets Act” that’s moving through the Prince George’s County Council. The legislation, backed by District 3 councilman Eric Olson, aims to change the way streets, sidewalks and bike lanes are constructed in the denser, busier parts of the county.
