SDOT is hosting an online ‘drop-in session’ for MLK Way bike lanes

Project map.SDOT is hosting an online “drop-in session” from 5 to 6 p.m. today (Tuesday) to share early design details about planned MLK Way S bike lanes between Judkins Park and Rainier Ave S.

There will also be an online survey. I will update this post to include that link once it is available, so be sure to check back.

The project is going through design now, but it likely won’t be completed for a while. The project website only states that it will open by the time Judkins Park Station starts operating in 2023.

The project team conducted a survey in the spring seeking feedback on three options, and the overwhelming majority of respondents (67-69%) chose Alternative 3 with protected bike lanes on each side of the street (see feedback in this PDF).

Notably, the project map shows the route continuing across the intersection with Rainier. This is a big deal, since that intersection is truly terrible and desperately needs safety improvements for all road users, especially people walking.

More details from SDOT:

We are currently in the early design stage for this project and are focusing on gathering input and feedback from the community as we further develop the design for the chosen alternative.

How you can get involved:

We will continue advancing design work in 2020 and plan to build the protected bike lane by the Judkins Park light rail station opening in 2023. This will be an important connection to both light rail stations as well as the I-90 Trail, Franklin High School, and the Metro Transit Center.
