TBD Northwest/Elm/Dupont Bike Lanes

Northwest Bike Lanes Vicinity Map

Project Overview: ES-0447

Completing bike lanes along this corridor will provide a multi-modal transportation corridor extending from the northern portion of the city to the city center. The Northwest Corridor is a direct arterial route to the north end of the city with minimal grade. The addition of bike lanes will provide increased safety for bicycle commuters and pedestrian safety at key intersections fitting with both the City of Bellingham Comprehensive Plan and the Fountain District Urban Village Plan.

This project includes bike lane improvements as directed by City Council at their meeting on 5/9/11. In addition to pavement markings, the road will be resurfaced on Elm between Dupont and Northwest and on Dupont between Elm and the Pickett Bridge. Pedestrian curb extensions will be added at Connecticut and Monroe intersections. Work includes parking mitigation as required for implementation.

Funds for the bike lanes come from the 2012 Transportation Benefit District Fund.

Update - December 2013

Accomplishments: Project substantially completed in July 2013.  Project closeout was done with repaving of Woburn Street in Spring 2013 under ES-0459 contract.
