You hear a lot about the “missing link” on the Burke Gilman Trail, but there’s also a “missing link” in the Mountains to Sound Greenway trail as it passes through the Eastgate and Factoria sections of Bellevue.

One of those is the bike lane across the Interstate 90 Lake Washington bridge that links Seattle with the Eastside suburbs.
The proper name is the Homer M. Hadley Memorial Bridge, and the bike lane has been part of the bridge since it opened in 1989.
I discovered this bike lane on the westbound floating bridge soon after moving here 11 years ago. I use it on my occasional bike rides into Seattle or down to the ferry terminals for rides on the Olympic Peninsula.
Hundreds of bike commuters use it daily ….
