Tonight, the Seattle Department of Transportation is holding a public open house to receive comments on their (heavily) revised proposal for Dexter Ave bike, pedestrian, and transit facilities. The open house is from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Swedish Cultural Center (1920 Dexter Ave N).

The revised proposal calls for six-foot bike lanes on each side of the road with two-foot painted buffers, similar to the new buffered lanes on 7th Ave. SDOT original proposed to build the city's first "American-style" cycle track with parked cars acting as a barrier between the car and bike lane.

The revised proposal still retains the original plan's pedestrian and transit elements including raised bus bulbs and new marked crosswalks.
