GREAT NEWS IN AN NUTSHELL! Bravo Seattle! Seattle’s Mayor Turner announced that their new 20 miles of pedestrian and bike STAY HEALTHY STREETS, will be permanent and bike lanes will be significantly expanded! YAY Seattle!
Along with my celebration of this, out of curiosity, I checked how many total miles of roads there are in Seattle: around 3,900! All those of us who love Seattle and clean air hope that many many more (hundreds of) miles will be added to their healthy streets initiative.
Inspiration for Seattle? Paris declared that their 405 miles of bikeways, named CORONA CYCLEWAYS, will be permanent!
Further search shows that other cities, including Washington DC, NYC, Boston, Oakland, and more are following suit and opening roadways for pedestrians and cyclists.
Spread the great news!
