Somerville Bicycle Network Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City of Somerville, in collaboration with Street Plans, is developing a citywide bicycle network plan. The vision for bicycling in Somerville is to design our streets so that everybody, regardless of age and ability, can ride a bike to anywhere in the City feeling safe and comfortable.

The Somerville Bicycle Network Plan will support this vision by establishing a network that will designate corridors for various bicycle infrastructure (such as protected bicycle lanes on roads or lanes next to sidewalks). The plan will connect gaps in the current network and will be a guide for future improvements.

समरभिल साईकल सञ्जाल योजनाले हाम्रो सडकको डिजाइन योजनालाई मार्गदर्शन गर्ने लक्ष्य राखेको छ ताकि उमेर र क्षमताको भिन्नतका वावजुद सबैले सुरक्षित र सहज महसुस गरी सिटिको जुनसुकै ठाउँमा साईकल चलाउन सकून्।

O Projeto da Malha de Ciclovias de Somerville visa transformar nossas ruas para que todos, independentemente da idade e habilidade, possam andar de bicicleta para qualquer lugar da cidade de forma segura e confortável.
