You’re invited to the Westlake Cycle Track open house on May 21. Join us to learn more about the project goal and objectives; talk with project staff; see traffic circulation and parking utilization data; and provide input about this unique corridor and what should be considered as a bike route within the parking area is selected. We want to hear from you so we can design a bike facility that adds predictability, improves safety for all users, and supports economic vitality.

When: Wednesday, May 21, 5:30 – 8:00 PM

Where: Fremont Studios, 155 N 35th Street

Presentation:  6:15 PM

You’ll also be able to meet our 13-member Design Advisory Committee. The committee was appointed by Mayor Ed Murray to represent a variety of interests and is meeting regularly to provide feedback on the project.

The Westlake Avenue North corridor between Fremont and South Lake Union neighborhoods connects the Fremont Bridge, Ship Canal Trail and Lake Union Park. This unique 1.2-mile corridor is a major truck and transit route and is home to marine-related businesses, moorage areas, floating homes and more. People walking, using wheelchairs, biking and driving all share an undefined space, which can affect safety for all users. A bike facility will add predictability for all users and create a safer, more comfortable place for people of all ages and abilities to bike.

All are welcome at the open house! If you are unable to attend, you can learn more and share your thoughts by visiting our website, emailing or calling us:
