Seattle, US is preparing

Many cities have seen grassroots campaigns to remove urban expressways, but Seattle is the first place where government outsiders have rallied to create AV-only highways. In September 2016, a local venture capital group enlisted by Microsoft research head Craig Mundie published a proposal to convert portions of the I-5 corridor to AV-only use over the next 10-15 years.

The city’s New Mobility Playbook, published in September 2017 outlines a far more progressive AV policy framework with a broad mandate. The plan’s three directives: (1) continue prioritized walking, biking and transit, (2) support AV pilots, and (3) establish additional policy parameters to align AV developments with the city’s core mobility goals.
