Our friends over at the Wallyhood are reporting that there are preliminary designs to change 45th and 50th to be One Way streets!
“The final aspect of the plan is to add a protected bike lane to 50th on the South side of the roadway. SDOT states this will connect cyclists in Wallingford and Phinney with the U-District, meeting a key need identified in the bicycle master plan. With all the bike-only density going in on 45th, SDOT did not feel that an I-5 crossing could wait the 20 years or so it would take for the planned pedestrian and bicycle overpass at 47th to be built.”
