Martin Way Bridge to Open Soon

The long-awaited second link in the "Bridge The Gap" project is on track for completion as we head into Spring and the busy biking season. This bike and pedestrian bridge will span Martin Way, connecting the Northern leg of the Chehalis-Western Trail with the bridge over I-5 and the I-5 Bike Path. The last link is a planned bridge over Pacific Avenue, which will link the whole length of the Chehalis-Western Trail with the I-5 Trail and the Olympia-Lacey Woodland Trail. Stay tuned here for updates and an announcement when the ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled.

Another project nearing completion is an extension of bike lanes under the I-5 overpass over Martin Way, about a mile east of the new bridge.
