North Delridge tour with CIty Council, SDOT reps: You’re invited

If you live and/or drive, ride, walk, run in the North Delridge area, take note this morning that City Council and SDOT reps are coming over next week for a walking tour focused on transportation-related concerns, just announced by North Delridge Neighborhood Council transportation chair Jake Vanderplas. He says everyone’s invited; meet in front of the Delridge Community Center at 3 pm on Wednesday, January 11th. The itinerary and issues will be discussed two days before the tour, during next Monday’s monthly NDNC meeting (all welcome there too, 6:30 pm January 9th at Delridge Library).

    I am not able to make this meeting, but I hope the group seriously considers integrating a bicycle lane into Delridge Way SW. I know there is consideration of other streets as bicycle routes, but they don’t serve areas south and east. Delridge is a logical bike route for a large area of West Seattle, mainly because the grade along Delridge and the access from Puget Ridge and areas east. Right now, the streets is pretty dangerous from a bicycle standpoint. I know there are lots of demands on the street, but I think it is possible to integrate a full bike lane in each direction.

    Twitter, thanks for the comment. I bike Delridge almost daily, so I share your concern! It would be great if you could repost your comment below the recent NDNC blog post as well:
    I’ll be sure to mention your thoughts at the meeting.

    Bike lanes on Delridge?

    There are plenty of side streets paralleling Delridge which could be used by riders instead of putting yet another road on a road diet.

    I understand the zeal in which some cyclists want to put forth any and every request they can, but in the era of limited resources, it would be nice if these people put in requests that have a more solid justification.

    I run on the path going from the Home Depot site all the way to Downtown, and know that there are plenty of routes up to the bike path under the West Seattle Bridge that don’t require additional resources to use.

Sorry, comment time is over.
