    Cool to see the lightrail expanding in Sac and also their plan to finally think about getting serious about bike networks. Sac often typifies the “a network is only as good as its weakest link” adage.

    Hopefully the upcoming North 12th St Complete Streets Project is a harbinger of Sac’s new approach, turning a decomissioned state freeway into a local Complete Street with:

    –> protected bikeways
    –> Dutch-style protected intersection
    –> lightrail
