A couple quick notes about local bike trails:
  • The new multi-use path along Alaskan Way is open, no more waiting on the train, no more detours. It should be really helpful to Sodo and West Seattle commuters. The SDOT blog and WSDOT project page have detailed information. Update: Seattle Bike Blog has coverage as well.
  • The utility relocation portion of Phase II of the Ship Canal Trail is complete, once the railroad completes their work, the trail construction - which will connect under 15th to Magnolia, filling a long-needed gap - can get underway. Mid-August is the current estimate for construction to start. The project page has more details.
