There are big plans for a safer and easier commute for bicyclists commuting from West Seattle to downtown Seattle but much still needs fixing.   Cyclists face potholes, standing water in the uneven pavement, railroad tracks, faded bike lane stripes, and the constant threat between freight trucks and northbound cyclists entering from the West Seattle Bridge trail from causing a bicycle accident.

Another hazardous area bike riders must cross is East Marginal Way South in Seattle to reach the bike lane to downtown Seattle.  Truck drivers tend to show courtesy toward the bicyclists, but sight lines are poor enough that cyclists shun two traffic signals, instead choosing to cross wherever the coast is clear.


Hopefully, once the viaduct project is completed, bicyclists will have one of the best views and paths along the waterfront for safe riding without having to worry so much about getting in a crash with a car or truck.
