Keep Lake Washington Boulevard open to walking, biking, and rolling!
This summer, the City of Seattle opened Lake Washington Boulevard to people walking, biking, running, and playing, as well as local access for vehicles. These “Stay Healthy Streets” and “Keep Moving Streets” have been a lifeline for safe and socially-distant recreation. They’ve been a crucial commuting link for people-powered transportation. They have also dramatically increased public access to green spaces and lakefront views in a time when most parks, gyms, and community centers have been closed.
This program was so popular that the Lake Washington Boulevard Keep Moving Street was extended from the original end date of September 8th until October 5th. Weekend after weekend, enthusiasm for this new urban park continues to build.
But now, SDOT has announced that Lake Washington Boulevard will revert to vehicle traffic, starting Monday October 5, 2020. This is your chance to contact the City and let them know how important it is to keep Lake Washington Boulevard open to community recreation during the pandemic. ACT NOW by signing the petition.
