Walk Bike Expo: Save The Date

Written by Boston Biker on Jan 26

Via MassBike:

——

This year is going to be HUGE for transportation funding. The governor recently announced that he is seeking to pump $1 billion more annually into the transportation system, and MassDOT intends to devote a nice slice of that to bike/ped projects. However, negotiations are going to be tough with the Legislature, and we can’t let biking and walking become a bargaining chip in the process.

Join us on April 11 at the State House to say with one united voice: Pass the Governor’s transportation plan!

We will also be educating legislators on the following topics:

  • Safer street design
  • Senior Safety Zones
  • Lowering speed limits on neighborhood streets
  • Vulnerable Road Users
  • Prohibiting cars parking in bicycle lanes.
  • Snow Removal

Mark your calendars, Thursday, April 11th from 10am-1pm in Nurses Hall at the State House for your opportunity to meet legislators and fellow Bay State advocates. Find more details at the event page (it will be updated as we learn more about the legislation and work out the event logistics). This event is free and open to the public. Last year, biking and walking advocates came from around the state and this year it is crucial that we have an even more powerful showing on Beacon Hill from people who value livable communities, who want safer roads, or just people who bike and walk for fun, fitness or transportation.

If you have any questions, please email [email protected]. More details to come soon!

    • Thing A Week 6: Carving A Wax Crow Skull February 12, 2017
      I want to make a pewter casting of a crow skull for a pair of earrings.  The only problem is, crow skulls are too big for earrings, and I don’t have a crow skull. I do have carving wax and some wax carving tools, so I decided I would make a scale model of a […]
