Remember the tunnel boring machine naming contest? Well, the Seattle Department of Transportation needs your help and creativity again. This time, the city is looking for a name for a new protected bike lane sweeper. And while you can no longer submit original names you can vote for your favorites.
The new protected bike lane sweeper is a mini version of the street sweepers that you see cruising Seattle streets during the summer. It’s designed to fit perfectly in protected bike lanes and helps keep the road clear and clean so that you can bike to your heart’s content. For that reason, the new machine needs a great name.
