Madison Corridor Bus Rapid Transit Study - Upcoming Community Events

Hello – I am writing to let you know about two upcoming community events related to the Madison Corridor Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project Definition Study:

Friday, September 19th, 9am – 3pm:  The Madison Corridor BRT Study team will host a Park(ing) Day 2014 parking-spot event in order to talk with corridor users and share information about the Madison Corridor BRT Project Definition Study.  We will be located in a parking space along the south side of Madison, just east of Boren, past the existing Metro bus stop, near GNC.  We will have a comfortable place to sit (bus seats!), a bike rack to practice loading your bike on the bus, and study information.  Please stop by to visit with SDOT staff, share your experiences with the Madison corridor and learn more about the study. 

Tuesday, September 30th, 5-7pm:  Please join us for the first Madison Corridor Bus Rapid Transit Project Definition Study Open House.  This open house is the kick-off to a year-long study of bus rapid transit along Madison from Colman Dock to 23rd Avenue East. Come to learn more about the study, bus rapid transit, and to share your knowledge of the corridor with the project team. We want to hear from you about how transit can be improved along Madison, as well as about key opportunities for pedestrian and bike connections and streetscape improvements.
Tuesday, September 30th, 5-7pm
Brief Presentation at 5:30

Greenway update

Thank you for attending the recent Central Area Neighborhood Greenway open houses on August 26 and 28. We had great turnout and really enjoyed speaking with all of you.

I wanted to let you know that all of the open house materials are available on our website: http://www.seattle.gov/transportation/centralgreenway.htm

Design of Phase 1 of the greenway (between S. Jackson and E. John streets) is complete, and we will begin implementation later this fall. Design for Phases 2 and 3 (the south and north ends, respectively) will begin this month, and we anticipate completing those phases by fall 2015.

Thank you again for your attendance and your valuable feedback.
