MORE INFORMATION:

During peak hours, there are over 120 people on bicycles per hour riding along Eastlake Ave. The University Bridge has the second highest volume of people on bicycles in the city. Yet it is an exceptionally dangerous route for people travelling by bike. From 2012-2017, there were 39 reported bicycle collisions along Eastlake Ave — and those are just those that were reported.

The goals of the Roosevelt Multimodal Corridor project are to improve transit travel times, reliability, and capacity, and improve pedestrian and bicycle connections and safety.
