SDOT says of the project: “The Westlake Avenue N corridor between Fremont and South Lake Union neighborhoods connects to the Fremont Bridge, Ship Canal Trail and Lake Union Park. This unique 1.2-mile corridor is a major truck street with transit and is home to marine-related businesses, moorage areas, floating homes and more. People walking, using wheelchairs, biking and driving all share an undefined space with a large amount of public parking. The Westlake Cycle Track (protected bike lane) project will add predictability for all users and create a safer, more comfortable place for people of all ages and abilities to bike. A cycle track is a protected bike lane with a physical buffer between moving vehicles that is also distinct from the sidewalk.”
