Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn: Make NE 65th Street safer for families to bicycle

    1. Petition by

      Neighbors for NE 65th Street Protected Bike Lanes

We need a connected bicycle network so no matter your age or ability, you can bike to where you need to go. But there are very few opportunities to build essential direct cross-city routes. A protected, separated bike lane on NE 65th Street is one of those few opportunities for an east-west route, connecting Green Lake to Magnuson Park.

Right now, there's a real risk the NE 65th Street protected bike lane could be removed from Seattle's Bicycle Master Plan. We must make sure Seattle continues to plan on building it.

Let the Mayor know that NE 65th Street is important for you.

    1. Mayor has a survey on how to make NE 65th Street Safer.

      Mayor McGinn and SDOT have a survey on four options for how to make NE 65th Street safer. We encourage you to take the survey and choose option A because it is the only option that:

      1. Connects Green Lake to Magnuson Park, along with Roosevelt Light Rail Station and Ravenna Neighborhood Business District.
      2. Is direct and minimizes intersection safety conflicts.
      3. Will be designed for all ages and abilities.
      4. Has the least steep slopes and elevation changes.

      We're open to further modifications, but it's the only option that would keep a compromise on the table that could meet all four criteria above.

      So, take the survey and choose Option A.
