The Moving New Orleans low-stress bikeway network is being built across neighborhoods near the center of New Orleans. Help our Coalition's campaign team spread the word about the benefits of safe, accessible biking and walking facilities for both residents and businesses.
Volunteer with us Wednesday, August 11th from 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm to share information and speak with residents along/adjacent to Gentilly Blvd in the Fairgrounds neighborhood.
'Low-stress' bikeways are coming to St. Bernard Ave, North Miro St, North Galvez St, Gentilly Blvd, Paris and Franklin Avenues in the 7th Ward and surrounding neighborhoods. Especially where a street is scheduled to see a major change to how it's arranged, we need to help make sure residents and business owners what to expect and how they'll benefit. Help us get the word out and identify supporters to keep building our movement!

As part of Moving New Orleans Bikes, the City is currently building 75 miles of connected, low-stress bikeway networks across Orleans Parish. These Complete Streets improvements, including parking-protected bikeways and bike/walk-friendly boulevards, will create more safety and less stress for everyone on the road - people walking, biking, driving and riding transit. Construction for Moving New Orleans Bikes in the 7th Ward, Tremé, Mid-City & Gentilly is currently underway!
By the end of the year, because of Moving New Orleans Bikes, residents of every age and skill level will be able to enjoy safe, low-stress rides between these historic neighborhoods, as well as to jobs and destinations downtown. Every resident in the 7th Ward, Tremé, Mid-City & Gentilly will have new low-stress commuting options by bike from their home to a job in the CBD or French Quarter, all on protected bikeways and bike/walk-friendly boulevards.
Will you sign our petition telling City officials you support Moving New Orleans Bikes, Complete Streets, and more safe and accessible mobility options in the 7th Ward, Tremé, Mid-City & Gentilly? While you do so, please leave a comment about how street safety improvements will benefit you and your community.

To City Officials,
I support the Moving New Orleans ‘low-stress’ bikeway network being built in the 7th Ward, Tremé, Mid-City & Gentilly! I’m excited for more safe and active streets connecting my neighborhood to nearby parks, shopping areas, schools, levee trails, ferry terminals, friends in other neighborhoods, bars and restaurants, jobs and opportunities.
Protected bikeways, high-visibility crosswalks, repaired sidewalks and new traffic signals will bring more safety and less stress to 7th Ward, Tremé, Mid-City & Gentilly streets, benefiting the entire community -- people walking, biking, driving and riding public transit.
Thank you for continuing to move our community forward by constructing these Complete Streets improvements for the benefit of the 7th Ward, Tremé, Mid-City, Gentilly and the entire New Orleans community!
