SDOT proposes bike lane for Dexter Avenue N



The Seattle Department of Transportation has proposed improvements to the stretch of Dexter Ave N between Mercer and Nickerson that it says are “designed to benefit everyone who uses the street, including commuters, truck drivers, bus passengers, pedestrians, and bicyclists.”

The project would include:

  • Repaving Dexter Ave N
  • Installing bike lanes on both sides of the street that are separated from vehicle traffic by a parking lane
  • Removing the two-way left turn lane
  • Providing dedicated left-turn lanes at busy intersections
  • Providing dedicated load zones for businesses that need them
  • Providing in-lane bus stops to improve transit speed and reliability
  • Installing dedicated bus islands

SDOT will be holding an open house regarding the plan from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 29 in Conference Room A at the Seattle Center’s Center House.

If you can’t make it to the meeting, public comments may be submitted via e-mail to walkandbike@seattle.gov, or by calling 206-684-7583.

The project, if approved, would be funding Seattle’s Bridging the Gap Levy.
