Today (Monday), WSDOT is holding a public session on the 520 Bridge design, and your input is needed.
The planned 520 Bridge replacement will include a biking and walking trail from Medina to Montlake as well as new paths in the planned Roanoke lid in North Capitol Hill. However, inexplicably, current designs do not include a bike trail on the short-but-vital segment between Montlake and Roanoke Park (and, therefore, Capitol Hill, Eastlake and routes downtown).
The sessions runs from 4:30 – 7:30 p.m. at St Demetrios Church in Montlake (2100 Boyer Ave E)
We need your help to ensure that the project links our communities together with high-quality and family-friendly pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure. If done poorly, this massive construction project could make it even more difficult for people ages 8-80 to get around on foot or on bike. Our largest ask of WSDOT is the continuation of the multi-use trail from Montlake to Roanoake. Building this trail will better connect all of the surrounding neighborhoods and the region.
We need YOUR help to make sure that WSDOT makes family-friendly pedestrian and bicycle improvements a priority.
The meeting will be held on July 16th between 4:30pm and 7:30pm at:
St. Demetrios Church
2100 Boyer Avenue East
Seattle, WA 98112
Located south of SR 520 in Montlake
