Jefferson Street Bike Facilities Complete



Our latest bike lane project is now complete!  E Jefferson St between 9th Ave and 19th Ave is now equipped with mixed bike facilities.  Climbing lanes were installed up the hills and sharrows were insalled for the downhill segments.   Connections to existing bike facilities can be made at Jefferson and Broadway, Jefferson and 12th Ave, and Jefferson and 19th Ave.  The completion of this project brings us closer to our goal of installing 20 miles of bike lanes and sharrows in 2010. 

Crews are now moving on to the next bike project in the University District where we will install one-way couplets on Roosevelt Way and 11th/12th Ave NE between the University Bridge and NE 75th St.  Peak hour parking restrictions are being removed and new bike lanes will be added along these roadways.  This project should be completed in just a few weeks and provide a great link to and from the University of Washington, the Burke Gilman Trail, and downtown Seattle.
