Community provides feedback on Bike Plan Implementation Project

Sunday, November 13, 2016

On October 18, the City held an open house for the Bike Plan Implementation project. Approximately 35 people, ranging from high school students to seniors, attended, providing feedback on the project proposals. The primary feedback was:
  • Concern about parking removal associated with the proposed bike lanes on 25th Ave NE in front of Kellogg Middle School, and Shorecrest High School
  • Wanting bike facilities/ a road diet on Richmond Beach Road west of 8th Ave NW 
  • Wanting better separation for bicyclist along the major east-west routes (185th, 155th, 175th, 145th)

As a result of the feedback and further analysis, bike lanes for 25th Ave NE will not be implemented as part of the current Bike Plan Implementation Project.


Instead, the City will implement bike facilities on 5th Ave NE from NE 155th St to NE 175th and on 8th Ave from NW 195th St to NW 205th St as outlined in the City of Shoreline’s 2011 Transportation Master Plan and the 2014 Bike Master plan.

The decision to remove the planned bike lanes on 25th Ave NE from the current project does not mean 25th Ave NE will not receive bike lanes in the future.

According to Public Works staff, "We have heard the public’s concerns and we will take more time to analyze 25th Ave NE to determine if there is a solution that would adequately address the public’s concerns as we work together to build out Shoreline’s Transportation Master Plan.
