The Bridge in the News

Excitement is building for the Bridge opening! Some news pieces have been written about it, and we hope to see more in the next month.

Salem Monthly posted an article to their website and we expect it'll go to print in the April edition.

The Bicycle Transportation Alliance held the Alice Awards on March 7th, and honored Mayor Taylor and the City with the wittily named Alice B. Toeclips Award. The BTA give the Alice Awards to individuals, businesses, and organizations in Oregon and SW Washington "for stellar works of bike advocacy that have promoted the use of bicycles and increased the livability of our communities." In the bike world these are a big deal! The nomination and award citation specifically called out the Mayor's advocacy for the bridge.

Read the Statesman web version here (or the pdf here). For more local coverage of the award as well as links to a longer profile of Mayor Taylor and the Bridge, see the MWVBTA Breakfast on Bikes Blog stories.
