Coastal Georgia Greenway, Inc. Applauds Senate Passage of Transportation Bill; Urges House to Follow Suit
On March 14, 2012, the U.S. Senate passed S. 1813, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21), the surface transportation reauthorization bill. On March 6th, Jo Hickson, Chair of the Coastal Georgia Greenway Inc., met with Senator Isakson and Senator Chambliss Transportation Aid and sought their support of continued funding for Transportation Enhancements, Safe Routes To School, Recreational Trails. All those who have fought so hard for active transportation policies applaud the U.S. Senate for passing S. 1813. Passage means that the nation’s critical transportation and infrastructure needs, including providing adequate access for the millions of Americans that bike, walk, and use transit as their mode of transportation, will be met.
As amended, MAP-21 will continue to allow local communities to compete for Transportation Enhancements (TE) and Safe Routes to School (SRTS) funds and will continue the successful Recreational Trails Program (RTP) and the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). The final bill also includes a safety provision that would lead to safe and complete streets, which will help to ensure that all transportation users are considered while planning transportation networks and corridors.The final Senate bill will help preserve more than 2.8 million jobs including employment opportunities for landscape architects and other design and construction personnel while also helping to achieve economic development for communities around the country.Please urge your Representative in the House to also pass a comprehensive surface transportation bill that meets the pent up demand for multi-modal, active transportation infrastructure in communities across the country. The Senate passed MAP-21 by a bi-partisan vote of 74-22.For more information go to: http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d112:s.1813

Ride Registration will begin at 9 at the Waving Girl Dock. Following the dedication, all are invited to join the ride that will follow. At 10:10 we will depart on the ferry and ride to the Waving Girl dock where we will meet with other riders and begin the bike ride at 10:30. The ride is free and open to the public. Riders must bring their own bicycles and are encouraged to were bike helmets. The ride will also help highlight a missing link in Savannah’s bike/ped network–the long overdue Truman Parkway Linear Trail. This stalled County project would connect Daffin Park and Lake Mayer Park with a nonmotorized multi-use path! So, you could hop on the ferry from the Trade Center, pop over to River Street, head over to Price Street, wander down to Ardsley Park, pick up Washington Avenue, head over to Daffin Park and, well, you get the picture. Ride begins around 10:30 a.m.
