Add Your Name in Support of Protected Bike Lanes on Union Street

BTV-PlanterProtectedLane_c_Nic_Anderson-edited_copy_(1)_copy.jpg

 

We, the undersigned, call on the City of Burlington to convert the buffered bike lane on Union Street between Main Street and Winooski Avenue to a protected bike lane.  Using the 2015 pop-up demonstration project as a model, we ask that the City add a permanent barrier between the bike lane and car lane that excludes regular traffic without impeding emergency vehicles.

In 2018, we ask that the City extend the protected bike lane southward at least to Maple Street, or implement a larger-scale overhaul of Union Street and Winooski Avenue that provides an equivalent level of protection for north-south bike travel through downtown.

    Build it!


    Streets belong for transit; not free vehicle storage. Subsidization of autos and parking lead to poor public health outcomes, which we all pay for via higher private insurance premiums and state & federal income taxes to cover increasing burdensome Medicaid expenditures.


    Inaction on creating safe bikeable streets is public health malpractice.
