Governor Jay Inslee announced a path in late July to retain investments in the safety of our children on their way to school, special needs transit and critical biking connections while moving forward on his agenda on reducing carbon emissions. Washington Bikes and Cascade Bicycle Club thank Gov. Inslee for making the choice that retains Washington’s historic transportation investments in bicycling, health and safety.
The current street design of NE 65th Street is both dangerous and discourages people from biking. With the death of Andy Hulslander, it is time to fix it. Cascade urges SDOT to make immediate safety improvements within the next month, followed by full implementation of the BMP-prioritized protected bike lane on NE 65th Street from Ravenna Boulevard to 20th Avenue NE.
