The Green Lane Project announced today that Seattle has been selected as one of six new U.S. cities to join its intensive two-year program to build protected bike lanes. Through the project, the city “will receive financial, strategic and technical assistance to create low-stress streets and increase vitality in urban centers through the installation of protected bike lanes.”
Over 100 U.S. cities submitted letters of interest to join the program. The other cities selected for this year include Atlanta, GA, Boston, MA, Denver, CO, Indianapolis, IN and Pittsburgh, PA.
“The City of Seattle is proud to have been selected by PeopleForBikes to participate in their Green Lane Project, which has helped cities across the nation develop and implement protected bicycle lanes,” Mayor Murray said. “These lanes are an important part of Seattle’s transportation infrastructure and at the heart of our Bicycle Master Plan. The Green Lane Project will help us make progress on our goals of making Seattle more interconnected, safe and environmentally sustainable.”
