Cycleway proposal for Broadway St. in Portland

My son first showed me this proposal for a cycle-track in downtown Portland.
He is a daily bike commuter, riding a respectable distance to PSU, and these sorts of transportation improvements are especially important to those that are riding on a regular basis, through all types of weather and lighting conditions.   It would be great if this could be accomplished.  Portland has been making remarkable progress to promote bicycling and to make it safe for everyone.  And Sam Adams has been a big part of that.

The other night, hometown indie rockers The Decemberists gave a national-TV shout out to Portland as a “big biking town” on the Colbert Report (watch the video above).

This morning, Portland Mayor Sam Adams went a step further, promising to remove one of three automobile lanes on a stretch of Southwest Broadway for a high-capacity “cycletrack” near Portland State University.
