Montlake detour coming to Lake Washington Loop bike route

2015_0521_WABN_ELWB_Mailer-mapIf you bike the Lake Washington Loop bike route or are headed to the Montlake Bridge the next two weekends, expect a rough detour along the way.

Lake Washington Boulevard will be closed from Montlake Boulevard to the Arboretum as crews working on the 520 Bridge Replacement Project rebuild the road. This closure includes the crossing at 24th Ave E, a key part of the regional Lake Washington Loop bike route.

The good news is that the detour only takes you a block or two out of the way. The bad news is that people biking and walking will mix on the shoddy Montlake Boulevard sidewalk to get around the construction. Add some extra time for delays and, as always, yield to people walking (this area sucks for them, too).

The detour hours will be:

  • 7 p.m. May 29 – 6 a.m. June 1
  • 7 p.m. June 5 – 6 a.m. June 8
