NW Flanders Bikeway Project

NW Flanders Visualization

This project will improve conditions for bicycling and walking by upgrading crossings of busy streets and connecting new and existing bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure. NW Flanders will connect Waterfront Park to NW neighborhoods and provide direct access to a new bridge over I-405. Specific operational elements have not been determined yet. Please look at the project map and graphics for proposed ideas. The project is funded primarily by Transportation System Development Charges.
