Construction on the Westlake Bikeway and parking circulation improvements is about to begin. You can learn more about construction activities at an information session 4 – 7 p.m. Thursday (tomorrow) in the Commons Room of the AGC Building.
Meanwhile, there is no official update yet on the status of the lawsuit brought against the city and the project by the “superyacht” marina Nautical Landing (“soon,” I’m told). The lawsuit came after a laborious community design process went over every inch of the bikeway plans, crafting compromises and creating a plan for a more efficient and safe parking area.
The lawsuit does not stop work unless a judge orders a stop.
If all goes according to schedule, the bikeway should be open in the summer.
Details on the meeting:
The Westlake Cycle Track is moving forward! Contractor KC Equipment plans to begin construction of the 1.2-mile cycle track later this year.
We look forward to opening the new protected bike lane in summer 2016.
Be sure to visit our project website for the latest, up-to-date construction information.
We’ll also send regular construction updates to this email list. Join us at a drop-in session
