The deputy hearings examiner has granted Cascade's motion to intervene in the Westlake Stakeholder Group's appeal of the update to Seattle's Bicycle Master Plan. So what does that mean for Seattle's bicycling community?
Lots of people agree --- Seattle needs a safe route for bicyclists of all ages and abilities along Westlake, connecting Fremont to South Lake Union. After years of hard work, we're so close to building a protected bike lane in the Westlake corridor. We've got the funding, the budgeting and the planning all lined up. But now the same attorney who tied up the Burke-Gilman Trail’s Missing Link in the courts for a decade is now trying to do the same to the Westlake Protected Bike Lane. Luckily, we've got a plan to stop them.
If you're like me, you want to spend less time in traffic and more with your family and friends. Here in Washington, we need a transportation system that provides more choices, while preserving our existing system of streets, bridges, ferries, and buses.
If we are going to plan, design and build a brand new place to bike and walk in Delridge, let's make sure we get it right. The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is hosting an open house in Delridge this Tuesday, Nov.19, that will give neighbors a chance to show support for the Delridge Neighborhood Greenway along 21st and 17th avenues SW between the West Seattle Bridge Trail and SW Cambridge Street.
