Imagine Biking Along the New Waterfront

Can you imagine biking along the new waterfront? Would you use a bike path to commute to work? The Office of the Waterfront is currently designing and planning for a brand new bike trail and bike facility that will be installed along the west side of Alaskan Way for everyone in the city to enjoy.

This new path will replace the existing trail beneath the viaduct and run along the new waterfront promenade. The bike path will be designed to respond to the needs of a variety of cyclists in the community, whether it’s commuting from the Colman dock ferries to work downtown, connecting a bike ride from West Seattle to Ballard, or just strolling along the waterfront promenade. We are also working closely with Pronto, Puget Sound Bike Share, to make sure we have a designated bike share location along the waterfront.

The two-way cycle track will connect the Elliot Bay Trail at the north end at Pine Street to the recently finished South King Street bike path. To give you a better picture, below are some images of what biking along the new waterfront bike facility might feel like.
