Protected bike lanes in Chicago
City’s quest for protected bike lanes top the Mayor’s “First 100 Day” accomplishments
The first 100 days are up, and Mayor Bill Peduto touted the Green Lane Project and grant as one of his top accomplishments. Two weeks ago, he talked about installing a physically separated bike lane in downtown by the Pro Walk Pro Bike Pro Place conference in September.
From the report:
Mayor Peduto and Bike Pittsburgh have secured a grant from People for Bikes to receive funding and technical assistance to install five miles of protected bike lanes in the City of Pittsburgh over the next three years. Protected bike lanes make travelling through the city safer for all people – cyclists, pedestrians, and drivers – and help us attract the businesses of the 21st century whose employees seek out these types of amenities. These new bike lanes will become a model for future complete streets planning that will reduce traffic-related injuries and fatalities across our city and promote healthy active living.
