Cities Get State Money For Bicyclists

posted by John Baibak - 

The state is awarding nearly  six-and-a-half-million-dollars to 22 communities statewide through the  Complete Streets Funding Program.  

The funds will be used locally to  improve accessibility for bicyclists, pedestrians, public transit and  other forms of transportation. 

Transportation Secretary Stephanie Pollack says the Complete Streets  Program is a reflection of the state's commitment to ensure roads work  for people of all ages, abilities and modes of transportation. 

The program mimics some of the patterns in Springfield which had dedicated street space for bicyclists.
