See What Happens When Art Intersects Transportation

Pedestrians and cyclists will be transported through a beautiful display of color and design as they travel through the new tunnel upgrade along the SR 520 trail, which opens this month. The tunnel guides trail users away from traffic at NE 40th Street to improve safety and travel times.
