After years of urging from community advocates, in 2017, the city of Beverly Hills approved adding bike lanes to its Santa Monica Boulevard re-vamp project. In recent days, reports are coming in on social media that Santa Monica Blvd. has "fresh kermit" - green-painted bike lanes.

The project is not quite done yet, but that green paint looks great. Kudos to Beverly Hills leadership for making sure Santa Monica Boulevard serves multi-modal transportation.

Now if the city leaders could convince their school district to stop wasting money on lawsuits against Purple Line subway construction.
