Does Salt Lake City, Utah come to mind when you think of cities leading the way in innovative cycle infrastructure? Probably not. But, they were one of the early protected cycling infrastructure adopters in North America, with one of the first official "Dutch-style" protected intersections. Unfortunately, the car-centric status quo pushed back, and things slowed down significantly for a couple of years.
In 2017, Jon Larsen took the helm as the Transportation Division Director and as you'll hear in this interview he and his team have got the effort the create safer, more inviting street spaces for "All Ages & Abilities" across all mobility modes back on track and have regained their momentum.
We look forward to a return visit to explore and profile their progress in the near future.
