Organization: Bicycle Transportation Alliance
Type: Bike Routes/Lanes
Oregon's Bicycle Transportation Alliance received $5,000 to help promote and develop their campaign for Bicycle Boulevards in Portland. These low-traffic roadways will serve as a way to prioritize bicycle traffic by retrofitting existing streets with bike-friendly treatments rather than building separate, off-street facilities. The BTA will market the Bicycle Boulevard model to other cities that are working towards making their street networks safe and navigable for cyclists.
