URGENT: Call Sam to Support the 70s Bike Boulevard

Our surveys have shown that we could dramatically increase bicycling by building more low-traffic bicycle boulevards. Here’s your first chance to help get a new Bike Boulevard funded!

The project is called the “70′s Bike Boulevard.”

The City of Portland has requested $3.8 million from Metro to fund a new 7.8-mile north-south route in Northeast and Southeast Portland along the streets in the 70′s (71st to 76th, depending on the area). This project would run almost the whole length of the city, connecting the Springwater Corridor to NE Killingsworth.

A group of regional leaders is meeting TOMORROW MORNING to make some decisions on regional projects, including this project.

While one boulevard project in the East 50’s is likely to get funding, the 70′s Bike Boulevard project is slated to be cut – so we need YOUR help to get it back on the list for funding.

Portland City Commissioner Sam Adams and the City of Portland should be making sure this project gets funded – call his office and urge him to step up for bike boulevards!

TAKE ACTION
Call and email Commissioner Sam Adams TODAY (Thursday) and urge him to support the 70’s Bicycle Boulevard.

    Done. Here’s hoping it wasn’t too little, too late.

    Sam,

    The 70s bike corridor is a very good idea and money well spent for improving the quality of life for many Portlanders. Please support the development funds appropriated for the 70s corridor.
