A new sidewalk and cycle path between Penny Drive and 40th Avenue NE is ready to stroll and pedal. However, we still need to complete striping and landscaping, so expect occasional closures for the next few weeks.
The sidewalk and cycle path run along our frontage with Sand Point Way and link up with the new traffic signal and crossing we’re building at 40th Avenue NE. The concrete sidewalk is five feet wide. The asphalt bike path is five feet wide in each direction. The project includes a large bus waiting zone at the midway point where Metro Transit will install a bus shelter.
The sidewalk and cycle path are part of our Livable Streets Initiative, making it safer and easier for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists to travel the streets in our neighborhood. By decreasing dependence on cars, the Livable Streets Initiative will help people stay active and reduce pollution, creating a healthier neighborhood for all.
