Westlake Cycle Track
Seattle’s Westlake Avenue is a busy corridor with many conflicts between drivers, pedestrians, and people seeking a safe, comfortable, direct bike route to and from downtown. Toole Design led an intensive year-long public engagement and alternative analysis process, bringing the community together around a concept design that met the needs of all travel modes, while still respecting the residents and businesses along this unique maritime corridor on Lake Union. With our help, Seattle City staff took the concept through final design and construction in less than a year. Following completion, PeopleforBikes named Westlake Avenue the best new bike lane in the country in 2016.
