S Columbian Way Protected Bike Lane Project

Last updated: August 11, 2017

What's happening now?

We are making a number of improvements along S Columbian Way that will enhance safety, connectivity, and mobility within the community.

This project will upgrade existing bike lanes to protected bike lanes between 16th Ave S and Beacon Ave S and connect them to the new protected bike lanes being installed as part of the paving project as early as 2018. The Neighborhood Street Fund (NSF) Project will upgrade the bicycle facilities between 16th Ave S to 15th Ave S. Learn more about other elements of the NSF project here.

Thank you for your feedback on the street proposals. The survey is now closed; we will update you with more information soon. You can learn more about the street proposals on our fact sheet, located under Project Materials. Stay tuned for more info in the coming weeks.

Project Overview

S Columbian Way is a busy thoroughfare. Between 2012 and 2016, there were 107 crashes along S Columbian Way, 4 including people biking and 3 including people walking. Upgrading existing standard bike lanes to protected bike lanes will help to slow vehicle speeds and make for a more comfortable riding experience for people biking.

We want to reduce crashes, make it easier to walk and bike, and make buses faster and more reliable in Southeast Seattle.
