Contractors have paved a new ramp on the stairs of the Montlake Triangle to provide a biking detour as construction on the pending biking and walking bridge over Montlake Boulevard has closed the path people are familiar with. The detour will likely be in place for at least the next year.
From Sound Transit:
As early as this afternoon on Wednesday July 18, 2012* the contractor will fence off the remaining NE area of the Montlake Triangle closing off the bike/ped ramp that connects NE Pacific Place to Montlake Blvd. (see map). Please see the map for the bicycle detour during this phase of construction.
We will be having an informational table this Friday at the University Village QFC to give an update
on the University of Washington Station construction and learn more about the future construction related traffic impacts to build the bike/ped bridge.

So what will the area look like in 2016 when the Link Station opens? Much different. Here are some images from the UW website:
