Bicycles and pedestrian routes
Bicycle and pedestrian routes will change during construction, but crews will maintain clearly marked paths, and outreach staff will continue to work with local bicycle and pedestrian organizations to communicate changes.

Bicycle and pedestrian improvements are an important part of our work to replace the viaduct. So far crews have built:
- A new multi-use path along the west side of Alaskan Way South, between South King and South Atlantic streets.
- New bike lanes on East Frontage Road South, East Marginal Way South and South Royal Brougham Way.
- New sidewalks on Railroad Way South, First Avenue South, South Royal Brougham Way, South Atlantic Street and Colorado Avenue South.
Future improvements include:
- A new multi-use path along the east side of SR 99 between South Atlantic and South Dearborn streets.
- A new 12-foot-wide bicycle and pedestrian path on the north side of South Atlantic Street, between Utah Avenue South and Alaskan Way South.
- Pedestrian plazas along Railroad Way South between Occidental Avenue South and South King Street that will be designed and built in coordination with the City of Seattle's Waterfront Seattle project.
Permanent bicycle improvements along the downtown waterfront will be designed as part of the Waterfront Seattle project.
