NE 65th Street Cycle Track—A Comfortable Separated Bike Lane

Seattle is building a network that puts all residents within ¼ mile of a bike facility. We want to make riding a bike a comfortable part of daily life for everyone. Cycle tracks are one piece of the network. Cycle tracks help eliminate perceived risk and fear of collisions; reduce the risk of dooring crashes; and add a level of predictability making streets safer for everyone.


A two-way cycle track on the south side of NE 65th Street with pedestrian enhancements at the intersection of NE 65th and Sand Point Way. The cycle track provides safer and more comfortable off-street access all the way from the Burke-Gilman Trail to the waterfront trails, to the Radford court multifamily housing and low volume park roads and sports fields.

SDOT will evaluate the project in one year to ensure that it is working as planned. At that time SDOT will examine signal function, traffic data, and feedback from people who use the road to walk, drive, and bike. SDOT will also make adjustments sooner if there are unforeseen issues.

The NE 65th cycle track creates another connection in our citywide bicycle network.
