Celebrate Bike Month on our new path

Just in time for Bike Month, we opened a new permanent connection between the on-street bike lanes south of South Atlantic Street and the shared-use path from South King Street. Here’s a map that shows the improvements, which include:

  • A dedicated, 14-foot-wide shared-use path with improved paving.
  • Improved lighting.
  • A separate northbound and southbound path for more efficient navigation.
  • Signs warning of vehicles crossing the intersection of Alaskan Way South and South Atlantic Street.
     

The bicycle and pedestrian improvements in this area are associated with a project that opened a new overpass to the west of Seattle’s stadiums in January 2014. By allowing traffic to bypass the busy railroad track that crosses South Atlantic Street, the overpass helps move freight and daily commuters faster and more reliably through the area.

Celebrate Bike Month with us

Bike to Work Day is on Friday, May 16, and we’ll be stationed alongside the new path that morning to talk with bicyclists. Stop by our table near the entrance to Terminal 46 at South Atlantic Street. Seattle E-Bike and the Port of Seattle will be with us as we hand out maps and other great information for bicyclists between 6 and 9 a.m.

You can also join us at Milepost 31 for our monthly activity for kids. This month we are celebrating Bike Month and getting ready for summer. Make decorations for your bike, learn the rules of the road, find cool places to ride this summer and discover easy maintenance tips to keep your bike running all year long! The event will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 17.
