Go!Bainbridge

Let the New Year begin!

January will be a month of advocacy for GO! and hopefully many of you can help us.  There are several projects in the works which need input on how best to address walking and biking issues. Please consider attending one of the meetings or sending us your ideas.

  1. Winslow Ferry Terminal: A $4.5 million remodel is scheduled for our terminal this spring with the majority of work on roof and insulation issues. But elements such as the renovating the bathrooms, removing the indoor tool booths, relocating Commuter Comforts inside, etc. are of interest to the public.  A public meeting will be scheduled later in the month and we will keep everyone posted.
  2. Seattle Terminal: The whole terminal is coming down in a few years and GO! has met with WSFerries and Squeaky Wheels to start the discussion on how best to accommodate the increasing number of cyclists and 4 million annual walk-ons.
  3. Olympic Drive: Work is planned to make Olympic Drive, from the ferry to Winslow Way, safer for everyone, especially cyclists. Squeaky Wheels is working closely with COBI on this and we are following it from the walkers' viewpoint.
  4. Highway 305 Trail: The Sound to Olympics route for cyclists goes from our ferry to the Hood Canal Bridge.  A grant has been received to start the design process on it and actually construct a bit from Winslow Way north. Meetings on this should be later this year.
