Connect Westlake

Connect Westlake is a team of caring neighbors and bicyclists working to build public support for a protected bike lane in the Westlake Corridor along Lake Union.

The City of Seattle is currently designing a protected bike lane through the parking lot in the Westlake Corridor along Lake Union. When built, the protected bike lane will provide a direct, flat and comfortable connection between Fremont and South Lake Union for bicyclists, while providing a safe place for pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers without fear of collisions. 

Next Event: The Open House

On Wednesday, October 22, the Seattle Department of Transportation will hold its final public open house on the alignment design for the protected bike lane. We need to show strong support for the project. Please attend.

Westlake Protected Bike Lane Open House
Wednesday, October 22, 5:30-8:00 p.m.
Fremont Studios, 155 N 35th St, Seattle, WA 98103

Everyone who registers to attend will get a free "Connect Seattle" t-shirt to wear at the open house. After the open house, join Cascade at Brouwer's Cafe for our monthly Bike Happy Hour.
