Speak up for More Stripes on Streets

We, the undersigned, call on the City of Burlington to work with Local Motion and other partners to install new bike lanes on at least two major streets that:

a) are important connections for biking; and
b) can have bike lanes added without significant changes to vehicle lanes and without any major construction.

We urge the City to add bike lanes to these streets by fall 2016.  We encourage the City to take a "light and fast" approach to adding bike lanes, restriping streets based on in-house engineering knowledge rather than hiring an outside firm to do the design work.  

Finally, we call on Mayor Weinberger to allocate the funds needed to pay for extra line grinding and striping costs incurred to create these bike lanes, and to work with city staff to expedite these projects.

    Stripes! Yes, Please! I don’t own a vehicle. I’m not speeding through the ‘hood. I’m not creating potholes. I don’t ‘text’. And…I’m not alone.

    I don’t have a car, I ride my bike every day, everywhere. I obey traffic laws. I have almost been hit by cars on multiple occasions. I love riding my bike but I’m also aware of the ways I’m endangering myself for doing so. Please help make our streets safer for bikers. We are fierce but we are breakable.

    Having lived in Copenhagen, I have seen how safe and welcoming biking can be. Due to their investment, they have cleaner air, less parking problems, healthier people, and empowered kids. Let’s invest here!
