33rd Ave W Pedestrian and Bicycle Bridge

Review Status

On August 19, 2021 We reviewed the concept design (30% design phase) for the 33rd Ave W Pedestrian and Bicycle Bridge project.  At this meeting we voted to approve the concept design with several recommendations.  We will review the project again at a future date. 

Project Description

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is evaluating options to rehabilitate or replace the 33rd Ave W Pedestrian and Bicycle Bridge in Magnolia. While still safe to use, the bridge is showing signs of deterioration and is near the end of its useful life. This timber bridge connects people walking and biking across an active railroad corridor to Commodore Park in Magnolia and the Ballard Locks area. It provides access between Ballard and Magnolia, connecting cyclists to Discovery Park and jobs in Uptown, South Lake Union, and Downtown
