Project inspires bike, bus & walk map

The NE 45th St Viaduct Project is not only replacing the old timber structure to the west – it’s also inspired a new outreach effort. The project includes a program to encourage walking, biking, and riding during and after construction. A “Bike, Bus, Walk Map” of the project area shows specific bus routes, biking options, walking distances and Zipcar locations.

To further encourage biking, free bike lectures and workshops will also be offered, as well as “bicycle brigades,” where an experienced biker leads a group to and from the Burke Gilman Trail. The NE 45th St Viaduct project website has all the info, along with resources on how to plan a bus trip; get real-time bus arrival times; find a carpool partner; and load a bike onto a bus. Incentives provided include free bus tickets and $75 of free car sharing from Zipcar.
