Reminder: Summer weekends on Lake Washington Blvd

Tomorrow (Friday) afternoon through Monday morning, we’ll close 3 miles of Lake Washington Blvd to pass through traffic and open it to people walking, rolling, and biking. The 3-mile closure will extend from Mt Baker Park to Seward Park along Lake Washington Blvd. 

We’ll continue these weekend* closures through at least September to create more space for people to bike, walk, roll, and enjoy Lake Washington.  

*For consistency, barricades will be placed Friday afternoons and removed Monday mornings. This also reduces costs in paying staff overtime. On Labor Day weekend, barricades will be removed the following Tuesday morning.

Important details  

Local access
People driving to homes along the boulevard because they live there, are visiting, or making deliveries are allowed from the nearest cross street.  

Cleanliness 
Based on neighbor input, we’re adding a portable toilet to the Ferdinand parking lot and will be servicing the Adams St portable toilet daily. We also deployed additional garbage cans in a few locations along the Blvd. 
 
Data collection
We’ll continue 
collecting data related to possible traffic diversion at S Genesee St (east of 38th Ave S), S McClellan St (east of 31st Ave S), and Wilson Ave S (northwest of S Lucille St). We’re adding a counter to collect data for Hunter Blvd S.  

Staff will also observe and collect counts on the number of people walking, biking, and rolling along the street closure. 

Parking
Seattle Parks and Recreation parking lots are now open which should be a big load off the increased parking, driving, and noise on side streets.  
 
While all parking lots are open, we’re limiting which lot entrances are open to minimize driving on Lake Washington Blvd. 
The map above and linked here shows parking lot access. 

Please take extra caution at the entrance of Stan Sayres Memorial Park and Mt Baker Rowing & Sailing Center where there’s a higher volume of people driving in and out of the parking lot entrance with boats. We’ll be separating people walking/biking and people driving along that stretch to make access easier and safer.
