Portland shows off its growing network of neighborhood greenways
In this new video from StreetsFilms, Portland shows us that bicycle boulevards are a low cost, easily implemented way to encouraging bicycling in communities with tight budgets. Many neighborhoods across the country have great networks of low traffic volume and low speed streets. Converting some of these streets into bicycle boulevards means calmer traffic, opportunities to improve stormwater runoff, and encouraging more “eyes on the street” to make neighbors safer and more pleasant. In other words, there are tons of benefits for residents that don’t or won’t bike.
