Cycle Track* coming to Dexter Ave

I know, right!

For years we have been hearing about all the great things going on Amsterdam and Copenhagen and now here in Seattle we have an opportunity to push bicycling to the next level.  For this to happen the city needs your support.

This project will improve the pavement condition by repaving the street in 2011.

As part of the repaving project, SDOT is proposing the following changes:
• Install a parking-protected buffered bike lane on each side of the street
• Remove the two-way left turn lane
• Provide dedicated left-turn lanes at busy intersections
• Provide dedicated load zones for businesses that need them
• Provide in-lane bus stops to improve transit speed and reliability
• Install dedicated bus islands

*What's a cycle track you ask? A cycle track is a separated bicycle facility that runs along a roadway. One of the differences between a bike lane and a cycle track is that the cycle track uses a physical barrier to separate bicycle riders from automobile traffic. Some examples of physical barriers are parked cars, a curb and landscaping.
