Join us in thanking SDOT for a safer Missing Link! UPDATED
UPDATE: On Saturday, Dec 21, Cascade staff, Friends of the Burke-Gilman Trail and Ballard neighbors delivered hot chocolate, donuts and a big THANK YOU to SDOT workers along the Missing Link. Thank you to everyone who came out in the rain and thank you to SDOT for making much needed safety improvements!
The Seattle Department of Transportation announced earlier this week that part of the Burke-Gilman Trail Missing Link, on NW 45th Street, will have a two-way protected bike lane starting next week.
The identified segment of NW 45th Street is one of the highest bicycle collision locations in the city and also a heavy industrial area. For over a decade, Friends of the Burke-Gilman Trail, Groundswell NW, Cascade Bicycle Club and thousands of Ballardites have been advocating for the completion of the Burke-Gilman trail.
The one-way eastbound solution comes after collaboration between organizations, the city and area businesses. To thank SDOT for their work, Cascade Bicycle Club staff and members of the Ballard community will bring hot chocolate and treats to the construction workers restriping the road and implementing the safety features.
Who: Cascade Bicycle Club staff and Ballard neighbors
When: Saturday, Dec. 21 at 10 a.m.
Where: NW 45th Street between NW 46th Street and 11th Avenue NW
