Better Biking Downtown

1450855_846877515341906_525318347_nThis is a potentially game changing week for making proposed bicycle infrastructure improvements a reality in downtown Boston. For those not already familiar, Boston recently received a TIGER Grant from the U.S DOT to make some major streetscape upgrades in and around downtown. The project, called Connect Historic Boston, calls for a family-friendly, bi-directional bike loop protected from car traffic that will provide residents and visitors a safe route into and around downtown and the North End.

This week, two major public meetings are happening to get community input on two important sections of this proposed bike route. Here is a rundown:

TONIGHT (Wednesday, November 20): the City of Boston will present a concept plan for the Atlantic Ave/Commercial Street protected bike lane. North End residents are especially encouraged to attend. Where? Nazzaro Community Center, 30 N. Bennet St. When? Tonight at 6pm!

TOMORROW NIGHT (Thursday, November 21): the city will host a public meeting to present and discuss the redesign of Causeway Street to include protected bike lane. Where? CBT Architects, 110 Canal St When? Thursday, November 21 at 6:00pm

With more people riding bikes in Boston everyday, and more to come, bicycle advocates are encouraging high turnout for both meetings to make sure these needed safety improvements get built.
