Seattle Bicycle Master Plan: Implementation Plan 2015-2019
5 minutes Date Enacted: Mar 27, 2015
Seattle’s Bicycle Master Plan (BMP) identifies projects and programs to be implemented over the next 20 years, to meet the vision of making riding a bike a comfortable and integral part of daily life in Seattle for people of all ages and abilities.
As part of this, the BMP calls for a connected network that includes approximately 100 miles of protected bicycle lanes and nearly 250 miles of neighborhood greenways. The BMP also identifies programs such as maintenance of existing facilites, bicycle parking, and programs to encourge more people to ride.
When fully funded and combined with existing facilities, the projects and programs identifed in this implementation plan will result in approximately one-third of the protected bicycle lanes and one-quarter of the neighborhood greenways in the plan being complete, and will make significant progress towards implementing other aspects of the BMP.
