PROJECT FUNDING

Current funding exists from the Puget Sound Regional Council and the City of Seattle. The Mayor allocated $1.2 million in proposed funding for construction in new budget legislation, made possible by savings from the Spokane Street Viaduct project. Pending City Council approval, this funding could be enough to complete construction, depending on final design details.

PROJECT CONTRACTORS

The Toole Design Group (a planning, engineering and landscape architecture firm whose specialty is bike and pedestrian transportation), has been selected to do the planning and design work for this Cycle Track project. The contractor for community outreach is expected to be awarded soon.
