Did your city turn a dangerous, high-speed street into a safe place to walk and bike this year? Got a new transitway or protected bike lane in your hometown that’s changing how people get around? Streetsblog wants to know about it.

The search is on for the best American street redesign of the year. Send in your nominations and Streetsblog will put the best ones up for a vote to our readers.

Last year, E Street in San Bernardino, featuring the center-running sbX bus rapid transit service, took the prize, beating some spectacular competition in Minneapolis, Pittsburgh, Boston and Seattle.

Send your submissions to angie [at] streetsblog [dot] org or post them in the comments. Please include a short description of the project and what it accomplished, as well as good before-and-after photos. Strong supporting materials will put your nominee in the best position to reach the final vote. Entries are due by December 17.
