520 Day – thanks for helping us “open” the SR 520 Trail!

Sunday (May 20, aka “520 Day”) was a big day for the SR 520 Program: we officially “opened” the SR 520 Trail across Lake Washington! Thank you to all of the trail users and community members who were there to help us cut the ribbon and celebrate this new community asset. Thanks as well to all of our community partners, including the Cascade Bicycle Club, who were on hand to help recognize the milestone. The SR 520 Trail user counter has registered over 105,000 trips in 2018 – a clear sign of the trail’s popularity and its role as a vital regional connection.

A group of people, some with bikes, stand around a path talking and looking at tables with informational material.


We’ve uploaded pictures from the 520 Day event on our Flickr page. Thanks again to all who stopped by. We hope you continue to enjoy the trail!


U-District StreetFair recap – learning more about upcoming SR 520 construction

We thoroughly enjoyed talking with all those who stopped by the SR 520 booth at this past weekend’s U-District StreetFair. Over the two days, project staff talked to more than 700 fair-goers about prior and upcoming SR 520 reconstruction. Have questions about the upcoming Montlake Phase of construction?
