(looking north on Fauntleroy from just south of Holly)
Thanks to John C for noting that the long line of “no parking” signs along Fauntleroy Way east/south of Morgan Junction has been followed up by what appeared to be lines for bike lanes, and work crews like the one you see above. That stretch indeed is identified as a bike-lane prospect in the citywide Bicycle Master Plan (get a closer look at West Seattle plans here); we asked SDOT‘s Rick Sheridan for details on what exactly is being done right now:
As part of the Bicycle Master Plan, SDOT is adding new bike lanes and sharrows on Fauntleroy Way SW from California to the ferry terminal. Your readers can basically expect to see a bike lane on the northbound side and sharrows on the southbound side. To accommodate the new bike facilities, we are shifting the center line in some locations and reducing the width of the two-way left turn lane. No parking will be lost due to the changes. Weather permitting, the work should be completed by the end of next week.
Over the next few days, we will also be installing bike lanes uphill and sharrows downhill on Sylvan Way SW from Delridge to High Point.
