Watch: Best Side Cycling rides the new Rainier Valley Greenway connection to the I-90 Trail

The short but important trail connection between the Rainier Valley Neighborhood Greenway and the I-90 Trail is open, and Hanoch at Best Side Cycling took it for a test ride.

As we noted in July, this short little trail at the end of 28th Ave S has been a long time coming. It never should have been this difficult or taken this long, but SDOT and WSDOT finally figured out a solution to make it happen. This will make it much more intuitive and feasible for people to use this greenway route, which first opened in 2017.

There are still some details still left to be finished, but the trail is open for use.

    In less than a month when the project is expected to be complete, we at the South Seattle Safe Streets Coalition (collaboration between Rainier Valley Greenways & Beacon Hill Safe Streets) are going to have a celebration with SDOT for this new connection into the neighborhood. This will include a community walk starting from College St Park (south end of this final segment) and ending at the I-90 Trail. We’ll have a tent/table/booth setup on the side of the I-90 Trail near where it crosses MLK Way in Sam Smith Park (north end of this final segment).

    Date/time: Tuesday, September 12 from 4:00-6:00 pm. Walk will start at 4:15 pm.

    We’ll also be reaching out to invite folks who were involved from the start of the Rainier Valley N-S neighborhood greenway project over a decade ago so we can give our thanks to those who got this process started.

    More to come as we figure out the details/logistics. See y’all there!

    A map, IMO, would be more helpful than a video.
