Pushing the City in Advance of the Seattle Squeeze

Have you heard of the Seattle Squeeze? Seattle city planners have been preparing for this car traffic crunch for years, but we don’t think they’ve done nearly enough. A woman on a bike in a protected lane surrounded by other people on bikes, walking, a bus, and a busy urban street. That’s why Seattle Neighborhood Greenways helped to form the Move All Seattle Sustainably (MASS) Coalition this fall, along with transportation and environmental advocacy organizations across Seattle. We called upon the Mayor to take action in advance of the Seattle Squeeze, which begins January 11, with the closing of the Alaskan Way Viaduct. MASS has become a powerful voice on the Seattle stage, and will continue to advocate for sustainable transportation into the new year. Check out the latest news, and MASS’s response to the Mayor’s current plan for the Seattle Squeeze.
