With Bertha’s unpredictable movements and more cycle lanes planned across the city, transportation issues are at the forefront of public discussion. What are the best strategies for tackling Seattle’s urban issues? More bike lanes? More crosswalks? Janette Sadik-Khan, former New York City transportation commissioner, has written a “handbook” for cities like Seattle to follow when undertaking major infrastructure improvements. She’ll appear in conversation with Mayor Ed Murray to discuss what she learned in New York including why adding 400 miles of bike lanes was a good idea, how to revamp existing streets, and what a pedestrian-friendly city should look like.
