Abstract

"City" piece on bicyclists in Portland who have been working with the city to get bike lanes added to the sides of municipal roadways since 1993. Bike lane advocates held a meeting with city officials on Nov. 14, only to be told by Portland's traffic engineer that plans for bike lanes were being sent back to the drawing board. In 1998, mostly through the efforts of the Alliance for Transportation Choice, a private, nonprofit advocacy group, Portland received over $64,000 from the state to mark six roads with bike lanes. But the project has yet to get beyond stage 1, according to Becka Roolf, director of the alliance.
