Have Your Say: Open House on Proposed Ravenna Protected Bike Lanes

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is proposing a number of investments and additions to current bicycle infrastructure in the Ravenna/Green Lake neighborhoods, including new bike lanes and upgrades from buffered to protected bicycle lanes, and new bicycle signage.

On Tuesday, SDOT will be in the neighborhood hosting an open house with a formal presentation:

Project Open House
April 7, 2015
6 to 7:30 PM
Presentation at 6:30 PM
Ravenna Eckstein Community Center
6535 Ravenna Ave NE

The proposed project would require moving or even removing parking along some parts on Ravenna Boulevard and 12th. It will also install a new protected bicycle lane on 15th adjacent to Cowen Park and links into the broader Bicycle Master Plan. Funding comes from the 2006 Bridging the Gap levy.

And here’s a map of the project area:

Footnote: the Ravenna-Bryant Community Association will meet that evening at 7pm at the Ravenna Eckstein Community Center for its monthly board meeting. Feel free to drop in and join us after the SDOT presentation.
