You spoke. We heard. Change is on the way to the SR 520 trail

By Ben Lennon

We asked, you answered and now swap is coming to Seattle's SR 520 Trail throughout Lake Washington!

You would possibly keep in mind that when a few problems had been raised in regards to the metal disguise plates at the trail's expansion joints, we put in a prototype plate designed to ease the bumps that a few bicycle riders had been reporting. We requested if the brand new plate, designed by using way of our engineers, was an improvement over the past plates. And, overwhelmingly, the reply was YES!

More than 260 path customers responded to our survey and supplied feedback, and 95 percentage stated the brand new plates had been an improvement.

Late summer installation
We're operating with our contractor to update all the slender hide plates at the floating bridge section of the 520 Trail with the aid of means of overdue summer. This will require a couple of intermittent path closures and as we get nearer to the replacement work we are going to get news out about any disruptions, adding on our 520 webpage. We'll do what we will to keep away from high-traffic occasions within the morning and evening.

Many way to everybody for taking the time to experiment out the brand new plate and supply their feedback. We're excited to have discovered a resolution that works for everybody and we are certain the brand new hide plate will supply an even smoother journey for these having fun with a motorbike experience throughout the SR 520 bridge.
The SR 520 Trail's western entrance is near East Montlake Park, and the trail stretches
across Lake Washington to Bellevue and beyond.
