Final Vote for Cycling Safety Ordinance

The final vote for the Cycling Safety Ordinance is here! This ordinance would require the city to build protected bike lanes on a street when it is reconstructed, if the street is designated to have a protected lane in the Cambridge Bike Plan. The law would allow the city manager an exception if the usage or structure of a street make it infeasible to build the protected bicycle lane, but this exception is to be invoked only “rarely” and the city would have to provide a written explanation of why they could not build the bike infrastructure and whether an alternative route could ensure connectivity.

The final vote is next Monday April 8, 5:30pm at Cambridge City Hall:
