Three years ago, PeopleForBikes set out to accelerate the construction of safe and complete bicycle networks in five U.S. cities.
Austin, Texas, completed 115 miles of new bike lanes to achieve a 50% build-out of its All Ages and Abilities Mobility Network in only 24 months. City leaders reasserted their commitment to this accelerated pace, dedicating $120 million to build another 200 miles by 2025.
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, leaders championed the completion of 50 new network miles aligned with its recently completed Bike(+) Plan. City leaders are dedicated to constructing an additional 15 miles in 2022.
Providence, Rhode Island, Mayor Jorge Elorza’s administration constructed 43 miles of new bikeways under his Great Streets Initiative. An additional 22 miles are planned for construction in 2022.
New Orleans, Louisiana, managed to construct 27 miles of new “high comfort” bikeways, predominantly in its historically underserved Algiers neighborhood. New Orleans offered the highest concentration of new protected bike lanes than any other city in the program.
Denver, Colorado, constructed 100 miles of new bikeways, tripling the pace of its planned network of interconnected, low-stress bikeways. In 2022, nearly 50 new miles of community-based networks are scheduled for implementation.
