Monroe to start building walking, biking path along U.S. 2

The 12-foot-wide trail, which will be separated from vehicles, will stretch from 179th Avenue SE to the North Kelsey Street shopping area. The project aims to offer a safe route for pedestrians, cyclists and power wheelchairs traveling along the same route as the busy highway.

Tatel, 64, almost exclusively uses a bicycle to get around. She doesn’t have a driver’s license and doesn’t like to rely on her husband Harvey for rides. Plus, she likes the exercise.

With her bicycle equipped with two baskets, she travels from her home near the Evergreen Health Monroe Medical Center to nearby shops. She sometimes bicycles through the fairgrounds, but the gates are often closed. She avoids riding on the highway’s narrow shoulder due to bad drivers.

“I was getting more cautious over the years,” she said.
