INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Indianapolis has been selected as one of six U.S. cities that will improve city bike lanes over the next two years.

The PeopleForBikes Green Lane Project announced Indianapolis, Atlanta, Boston, Denver, Pittsburgh and Seattle were selected to join its two-year program. The cities will receive financial, strategic and technical assistance to install protected bike lanes. The cities were chosen from more than 100 cities in the country that submitted letters of interest, a release said.

The Green Lane Project launched in 2012 and works with U.S. cities to install protected bike lanes. The on-street lanes are separated from traffic by curbs, planters, parked cars or posts.

Indianapolis will create the bike lanes with a focus on connecting more neighborhoods with the Indianapolis Cultural Trail and the city’s greenways trail system.

There will be a meeting in Indianapolis in late April, where leaders from the cities will gather to discuss the collaboration.
