I'm glad to finally see this. I remember trying to get a contra-flow bike lane between parked cars and the sidewalk on 2nd Ave in the Bicycle Master Plan back when I was on the Seattle Bicycle Advisory Board in 2006, but it was poo-poohed and never seriously considered at the time. I'm glad to see this finally making some headway!
