With less than three weeks left in the year, Streetsblog is now accepting your submissions for Best Street Transformation of 2016.

This is the most prestigious of all the Streetsie Awards we hand out at the end of the year, and we rely on our readers to determine who gets the nod.

Last year, the traffic-calming redesign of Queens Boulevard in New York City took the top prize, beating out strong contenders in Chicago and Salt Lake City. The Queens Boulevard project added a median-aligned bikeway on the borough's most important east-west street while preventing drivers from merging onto service lanes at dangerously high speeds.

The previous year, the redesign of San Bernardino's E Street with a center-median busway won the inaugural Street Transformation competition.

In the past 12 months, has your city reallocated road space to make big improvements for walking, biking, or transit? If so, we want to know about it. Finalists selected by the editors will be put up for a vote by our readers. (The cities that won the last two years are ineligible in 2016 -- need to spread the love around.)

To nominate a project, email angie [at] streetsblog [dot] org or leave the details in the comments. Be sure to include good before and after photos and an explanation of why the redesign deserves to be named the Best Street Transformation of 2016.
