19th Avenue & E Union Street Improvements
July 22, 2014
The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is planning to construct pedestrian improvements along 19th Avenue in the Central District neighborhood. This project will construct curb bulbs on both sides of 19th Avenue at the E Pike Street Stairs and at all four corners of the intersection of 19th Avenue and E Union Street. SDOT will also install a Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacon (RRFB) at the intersection of 19th Avenue and E Union Street.
An RRFB is a pedestrian-activated crossing signal that uses irregular flashes to alert drivers that a person is entering the crosswalk. These are cost-effective tools to increase driver awareness and stopping for pedestrians at marked crosswalks.
The work is one of the 12 projects selected by the Bridging the Gap Oversight Committee to be completed as part of the Neighborhood Street Fund program, which is funded by the Bridging the Gap (BTG) transportation levy, passed by voters in November 2006 and scheduled to end in 2015.
The project recently reached 90 percent design and the project team expects to finalize design by the end of this year. Construction will begin and be completed in 2015.
