Second Avenue is transformed
If you've ridden on Second Avenue this week, you've probably noticed things are a little different. There is a barrier between you and motorized traffic. You can now head north! You may even spot kids and families using the bikeway. A two-way protected bike lane is now in place, with separate traffic signals for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians. We've heard a lot of positive feedback so far though we recognize there is a learning curve to any changes.
Please let us know what you think and how it could be improved by emailing Brock Howell. We will be working with our partners to improve this design and plan for more protected bikeways in Seattle. A special thank you to Seattle Department of Transportation, SDOT Director Scott Kubly and our Second Avenue ambassadors for helping everyone get introduced to the new design on Monday and Tuesday.
Over 60 individuals volunteered their time as Second Avenue Ambassadors to help people walking, riding and driving get acquainted with using and cross the new bikeway. Big thanks to Cindy (pictured below) and everyone else who volunteered!
