Throughout the year, the SDOT Blog has posted numerous reports on the newest bike facilities to hit the streets in Seattle. This year we installed more than 20 miles of new bike facilities as we continue to implement the Bicycle Master Plan’s vision of a 450-mile on- and off-street bicycle network. Our planners and engineers tackled many difficult projects this year in an effort to expand our bicycling system. The map above shows our 2010 projects in red and existing bicycle facilities in grey. As you can plainly see, the network is really coming together.
We’ve already highlighted many projects like the buffered bike lane on N 130th Street, the S Columbian Way Project, the Greenwood and Nickerson rechannelization projects, the two-way couplet on Roosevelt Way and 11th Avenue NE, the innovative new facilities on 7th Avenue, the Ship Canal Trail, and the 3rd Avenue S link. However, some projects have slipped through the cracks. Check out the photos below to see our work then grab your bike to see them for yourself!
