N/NE 65th St & Woodlawn Ave N from NE Ravenna Blvd St to East Green Lake Way North


Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is making bicycling easier and safer in the Green Lake Neighborhood. In an effort do this; SDOT will install an uphill bike lane and downhill sharrow on N/NE 65th St between Ravenna Blvd and 1st Ave N. Sharrows will be installed on both sides of the street between 1st Ave NE and Woodlawn Ave N. An uphill bike lane and downhill sharrow will be installed on Woodlawn Ave N and on the block of N 64th St between Woodlawn Ave N and East Green Lake Way N. These changes are being made to help bicyclists get to the bike lanes on NE Ravenna Blvd and the bike lanes on East Green Lake Way North. Due to the narrowness of NE 65th St, SDOT will remove 12 parking spots on the north side of the street from the alley west of Latona Ave NE to 1st Ave NE to allow for a bike lane. Part of this parking is already restricted on weekdays for Green Lake Elementary School.  We have studied the parking and believe that these parking spots can be accommodated on the south side of the street and on side streets. The project will result in slightly wider travel lanes which will help to reduce. Bus service will not be affected and the corridor is not a designated freight route. These changes are happening to make the corridor a complete street to be better used by all forms of transportation.

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