Preferred Bridge & Approach Designs


The Sound to Olympics (STO) Bridge project consists of a pedestrian and bicycle overpass spanning SR305 connecting Knechtel Way with John Nelson Lane (near Vineyard Lane) and the STO Trail.  The bridge would provide a mid-block crossing between Winslow Way and High School Road, providing safe, non-motorized access for all ages between neighborhoods and public destination routes on each side of the highway.
