WASHINGTON, D.C. (BRAIN)—U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood will greet bicycle riders today outside U.S. DOT headquarters to accept a thank you letter signed by over 275 organizations nationwide for the Secretary’s leadership on bicycle and pedestrian issues.
LaHood has issued a new policy to make bicycling and walking safer and more accessible, setting the stage for creating livable communities that polls show Americans want, according to a press release.
Leaders from America Bikes, Safe Routes to School National Partnership and Transportation for America will bike down the new Pennsylvania Avenue bike lanes on their way to U.S. DOT. LaHood and representatives from three transportation organizations will speak and take questions from the media.
