20th Ave NW between NW 65th St and NW Market St


Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is making bicycling easier and safer in the Ballard Neighborhood. In an effort do this; SDOT will install bike lanes on 20th Ave NW between NW Market St and NW 65th St. These changes are being made to help bicyclists get to the Ballard Business District. In order to install bike lanes SDOT will remove the center turn lane on 20th Ave NW between NW 65th St and NW Market St. Due to the low number of cars driving daily on this section of 20th Ave NW this change will not affect traffic flow or inhibit access to residential side streets. Parking will not be affected by these changes. There are no bus routes on this part of 20th Ave NW and the street is not a designated truck route. These changes are happening to make 20th Ave NW a complete street so that it works better for all forms of transportation.

If you have questions about these changes or would like to be added to the project mailing list for future updates please contact SDOT at or by phone at 206-684-7583.


These changes are expected to go into effect in summer 2011.
