SURVIVE I-5, BIKE, DON'T DRIVE!
The clock is ticking. Extensive I-5 closures are coming in August. Do you have a plan?
Construction work on northbound I-5 between Spokane Street and I-90 will require around-the-clock lane closures from 10 p.m. Friday, Aug. 10 through Wednesday, Aug. 29. Crews will close several lanes of northbound I-5, leaving only two or three lanes open to traffic. The closures will have significant effects on traffic in the Puget Sound area.
What are you going to do?
Ride your bike!
Cascade Bicycle Club suggests riding your bike during the I5 closure this August. This closure represents a great time to try bicycling as your transportation option. Cascade Bicycle Club has put together a list of commonly used bike commuting routes surrounding the closure zone. Click here to see the list of routes with links to maps.
You won’t be alone.
During the month of May, thousands of people just like you answered Cascade Bicycle Club’s challenge to choose cycling instead of driving to work during the Group Health Commute Challenge. And on Friday, May 18, more than 19,000 people ditched the gas pedal for the bike pedal, riding to work on Starbucks Bike to Work Day!
Record-breaking participation in both programs clearly demonstrates that thousands of area residents are willing to ride a bike to work every day. Join us!
