Thank you to the Capitol Hill community for your engagement during the SR 520 Montlake project. We are excited to share with you that we have now opened the new bike and pedestrian route between the SR 520 Trail and Lake Washington Boulevard!
With this path, cyclists and pedestrians can get across SR 520 without using Montlake Boulevard, connecting the Arboretum with the University of Washington and the east side of Lake Washington. The shared-use trail is wide enough for pedestrians and bicyclists and includes lighting under SR 520.
We hope the new route will improve your travel through the SR 520 Montlake project area during construction. Please feel free to reach out to us directly with your feedback!
