In June 2016 Amanda Phillips was killed biking in Inman Square. A ghost bike was put in place near the site where she died and has been maintained by friends and family to commemorate her life and as a reminder that every person has a right to safety when they bike.
Last night's policy order passed! The order asks the city to look into building protected bike lanes from Sidney St to Putnam Ave on Mass Ave, which covers Central Square, City Hall, and other areas immediately to the west.
Somerville is considering a one mile protected bike lane on Powder House Blvd. We made a petition so we can show how many residents support the protected bike lane option. Some parking would be removed so it's important that we show the public wants this.
