City of L.A. Submits Application for the Green Lane Project
On January 14th, the City of Los Angeles submitted its application for Round 2 of the Green Lane Project to receive technical assistance from the nation’s leading bikeway design experts, one of LACBC’s key asks in the cycletracks petition! Winners will be announced in March 2014.
Thanks to all of you who signed the LACBC petition in support of protected bikeways in Los Angeles and helped to spread the word! This is a very positive step for the City of L.A. in truly bringing protected bikeways to L.A.
The Mayor’s Office has also lent critical support in the state legislature to the the California Bicycle Coalition’s design reform bill to legalize protected bikeways, and and the City last month installed bollards along the buffered bike lanes through the 2nd Street tunnel in Downtown Los Angeles. While protected bikeways exist in L.A. County in Long Beach and are scheduled to be installed in Temple City, the country’s second largest city still awaits our first true protected bikeways, hopefully as part of the MyFiguera project.
LACBC submitted our own letter of support to the Green Lane Project, reiterating our campaign goals for making L.A. a healthy, safe, and fun place to ride a bike.
LACBC is committed to continuing our partnership with the City of Los Angeles to build support for bicycle projects that serve L.A.’s diverse neighborhoods. You can read more about our goals on our initial campaign blog post and check out our letter of support.
