19th Avenue & E Union Street Improvements
Last updated: January 19, 2016
The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will construct pedestrian safety improvements along 19th Ave in the Central District neighborhood. This project will include curb extensions on 19th Ave at the E Pike St Stairs and at the intersection of 19th Ave and E Union St. In addition, SDOT will install a flashing alert system called a crossing beacon at the intersection of 19th Ave and E Union St. A pedestrian will be able to activate the beacon before crossing E Union St on the east side of 19th Ave, alerting people driving through that intersection that pedestrians are crossing.

The goal of these improvements is to provide safer crossings for pedestrians and improve mobility for all roadway users:
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 Seattle voters in November 2006 and expired at the end of 2015.
The project reached final design in 2014. Construction began the week of January 4, and will last for approximately 6 weeks, depending on weather conditions. The project team will continue to keep the community informed as construction details become available.
