Update on the Washington Way Improvement Project: SW Washington Way between SW 17 and SW 26th Streets will be reopening for all motor vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian traffic on Monday, January 8. The active work zone on Washington Way will shift to the west and the street and north sidewalk will remain closed between 26th and 30th Streets.

Cycle Track Opening: as part of the project, a two-way, dedicated cycle track will be constructed on Washington Way between 15th and 35th Streets. The cycle track section between 17th and 26th Streets will be opening on Monday, January 8. Because the cycle track between 15th and 17th Streets is not yet complete, temporary pavement markings will direct cyclists traveling eastbound to exit the cycle track at SW Benton Place and cross traffic to rejoin the existing bicycle lane.
