Work to be done in 2017

Bike Plan Implementation Project Open House

Tuesday, October 18, 2016
Shoreline City Hall, 17500 Midvale Ave N
Room 301 (Elevator to 3rd floor)

In 2008, the City of Shoreline completed the Interurban Trail, which runs north and south through the city. While the Trail provides a valuable connection for users traveling north/south, it is missing connections to local neighborhoods, parks, city amenities and schools.

The Bike Plan Implementation Project will complete the majority of the projects contained in the City’s adopted Bicycle System Plan and Wayfinding Program and help make those needed bike connections throughout Shoreline.

The Bike Plan Implementation Project will include work in all regions of the City. This work includes:
        Bike Lanes on:
o   Dayton Ave. N between Westminster Wy N and Carlyle Hall Rd N
o   25th Ave NE between NE 150th Ave NE and NE 168th St.
o   1st Ave NE between 185th St and N 193rd St.
o   Fremont Ave N between King's Garden Dr N and N 195th St.
        Sharrow Facilities on:
o   NE 195th St between 8th Ave NW and Fremont Ave N
o   1st Ave NE between N 193rd St and N 195th St.
o   25th Ave NE between NE 168th St and NE 171st St.
        Signed Routes on:
o   N Innis Arden Wy
o   NW 167th St
o   Greenwood Ave N
o   Carlyle Hall Rd NW
o   NW 175th St
o   14th Ave NW
o   Springdale Ct NW
o   NW 118th St
o   Ridgefield Rd NW
o   Innis Arden Dr NW
o   15th Ave NW
o   N 193rd St
o   N 192nd St
o   N 149th St

It seems that running a bike path past Shorecrest HS is asking for car/bike injury accidents. Between 7:30 and 8:50 a.m. a majority of the southbound cars turn right so would cross the bike path. Many of the drivers are relatively inexperienced, and are still learning to deal with the converging pedestrian and automobile traffic. It would be easy for them to miss a cyclist who, given their own lane, would be passing much faster than the auto traffic, on the passenger side of the car.
The other concern is the intersection where 25th Ave tees into 168th from the north. Experience on the Burke Gilman trail has shown that, although commuting cyclists generally avoid cars and are courteous to one another, they cannot be counted on to observe stop signs or be particularly patient, so it is not clear how they will interact with traffic that builds up at that intersection.
Bike path usage at other times of the day could be less problematic so perhaps there is an alternative for heavy traffic times around the schools on 25th Ave.
