Nantucket Cited in Report on Massachusetts Bicycle and Pedestrian Accomplishments

BOSTON – The state of Massachusetts was recently recognized nationally for the work being done by MassDOT to improve and increase the infrastructure for bicyclists and walkers.

One of the projects from last year highlighted by state officials was the completion of the multi-use path connecting Washing Street to Orange Street on Nantucket.

Massachusetts was ranked the fourth most bicycle-friendly state in the nation by the League of American Bicyclists.

“We are committed to promoting safe, accessible and reliable bicycle and pedestrian transportation options for people across the Commonwealth,” said Pete Sutton, MassDOT’s bicycle and pedestrian program coordinator.

“It’s extremely gratifying to be recognized once again by the League of American Bicyclists as one of the top states in the nation when it comes to promoting bicycling programs and policies,” he said.
