Eastside cyclists who will plan to head across the State Route 520 Bridge when it is rebuilt might want to take note: petition for the inclusion of a bike and pedestrian trail on the Portage Bay section of 520.
The Montlaker blog, which covers the Montlake neighborhood of Seattle and issues on the west end of the State Route 520 Bridge, reports of a petition organized by Central Seattle Greenways for the inclusion of a bike and pedestrian trail on the Portage Bay section of the bridge.
The letter says in part:
We strongly urge WSDOT build a multi-use trail along the Portage Bay Bridge from Montlake to Roanoke. This trail would serve as a critical link locally and regionally. Regionally, this trail would allow commuters from the eastside of Lake Washington to travel seamlessly to employment centers in South Lake Union and Downtown Seattle.
