2nd Ave Protected Bike Lane Extension Work between Denny Way and Blanchard St Begins October 23

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) advises travelers that crews will start protected bike lane installation on 2nd Ave between Denny Way and Blanchard St on Monday, October 23, as part of the 2nd Ave Mobility Improvements project. The protected bike lane from Blanchard to Pike streets was installed in October.

Beginning at 7 a.m. on Monday, October 23, and lasting approximately four weeks, travelers can expect:

  • 2nd Ave will be reduced to two travel lanes between Denny Way and Blanchard St
  • Parking and load zones will be restricted on the east side of 2nd Ave from Denny Way to Blanchard St
  • People biking will merge with traffic
  • Noise, dust, and vibration near work zone
  • Parking will be restored as the work progresses

After the work is complete, 2nd Ave between Denny Way and Pike St will have a new lane configuration (see existing and future images below):

  • 2nd Ave will have a new protected bike lane between Denny Way and Pike St
  • Only southbound bicyclists will be allowed in the protected bike lane until traffic signal upgrades are completed later this year
  • 2nd Ave will have two through travel lanes between Denny Way and Pike St
  • Eastside parking lane/left turn lane will be relocated outside the protected bike lane

New lane configuration on 2nd Ave between Denny Way and Pike St:

 

This project will upgrade traffic signals and extend the existing 2nd Ave protected bike lane from Pike St to Denny Way. Please visit the project web page for more information:
