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.
Team Meetings: First Tuesday of each month, 5:30 p.m. at the Nickerson Street Saloon.
Right now, the team is collecting "I ♥ Westlake Protected Bike Lane" postcards. We'll be delivering more than 1,000 postcards to Mayor Ed Murray to thank him for his leadership for the project prior to an October 22 open house for the project. Help us collect even more be volunteering today.
Can't volunteer or make sign a postcard in-person? Fill out our online postcard. We'll deliver it with all the other hard-copy postcards to Mayor Murray.
More information about the Westlake Protected Bike Lane
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.
The final alignment and much of the design work will be completed by the end of the year, in conjunction with advice from a mayor-appointed Westlake Cycle Track Design Advisory Committee. Check out Cascade’s Westlake project page and the city of Seattle’s Westlake Cycle Track project page for more information.
Connect Westlake team members are reaching out to local restaurants and retail stores in Fremont and South Lake Union to submit applications to the city for additional on-street (and on-sidewalk) bike parking racks.
