Changes to BAT lanes

February 28th, 2009 · 44 Comments

In response to lots of community feedback, there are a number of changes to the BAT lanes on 15th Ave West.  City crews were out today putting new signs and stripes in place to mark the changes.  

Seattle Traffic Operations Engineer Mike Morris-Lent tells us that the biggest change is for drivers coming off the Magnolia bridge southbound.  Instead of needing to merge right away at West Galer, drivers will now have an additional two and a half blocks to travel to West Lee before they have to merge.  Engineers hope this will make the merge safer and reduce congestion. 

In the northbound direction, there will no longer be parking between W Lee Street and the Magnolia Bridge entrance and parking will now be restricted on weekdays from 7 AM to 6 PM between W Prospect Street and W Lee Street. 

Crews expect to wrap up the work today.  Seattle police department will give drivers a week to get used to the changes before they begin enforcing BAT lane restrictions.

    Glad to hear this news! Merging into southbound traffic off the Magnolia Bridge has been ridiculous until this very pleasant change…..

    Hooray for keeping the pressure on these folks to see the light!

    Reduce lane capacity by 33% to accomodate one bus every two minutes during rush hour! (And that’s before Metro’s announced service reductions!) STOOPID! Please Ron Sims, give Mayor Knucklehead a job in DC!

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
