Project Description

As part of Seattle’s Bicycle Master Plan (BMP) we are building a new protected bike lane connecting Georgetown to Downtown.

The new connection will be the final link in a system of north-south bike trails between Seattle and South King County. This bike system includes the Green River Trail and the South Park to Georgetown Trail.  These changes will also make the light rail network more accessible for communities in Georgetown and South Park.

Project Goals

  • Enhance safety for all roadway users
  • Improve access and travel options from downtown Seattle to Georgetown and South Park
  • Keep as much parking as possible along the corridor
  • Provide a safe bicycle connection between Georgetown, South Park, SODO, and Downtown

Project Map

The new route on 6th Ave S connects to Airport Way S in the south and to the SODO Trail at S Forest St, which continues north to downtown.

Outreach & Schedule

A progression of project phases is labeled: planning, design, construction. A label titled “we are here” indicates that this project is in the early design phase.
