Community feedback:
What we’ve heard so far
• Providing access for
area businesses is critical
• Concerns about increased traffic
congestion in the corridor
• Landscaping should be easy to maintain
and attractive
• Bicycle facility should connect to a network
of bike routes
• Current corridor is difficult to navigate
as a pedestrian
• Project should improve the appearance of the
corridor to welcome people to West Seattle
FAUNTLEROY BOULEVARD PROJECT
How will this project connect to other
bike facilities?
