Work on Lake City Way NE will include lane restrictions and pedestrian detours. 

During construction you can expect:

  • Lane restrictions and closures on Lake City Way NE, 24th Avenue NE and NE 104th Way
  • Impacts to bus stop
  • Pedestrian detours

Many of these improvements were recommended by community plans in the Lake City Way Traffic Safety Project. Most importantly, these types of pedestrian facilities improve safety for all roadway users.

Project elements include:

  • New sidewalks on both 24th Avenue NE and Lake City Way NE
  • Curb bulb on the southwest corner of NE 104th Way and Lake City Way NE
  • Crosswalk and signal improvements at the intersection of 24th Avenue NE and Lake City Way NE
  • Bus stop improvements on Lake City Way NE
  • Accessible  curb ramps at the intersections of 24th Avenue NE and Lake City Way NE and NE 104th Way and Lake City Way NE
  • Storm drain improvements

In order to make these improvements, parking on the east side of Lake City Way will be permanently removed within the project area and traffic lanes will be shifted.

Project Benefits

The goal of these pedestrian safety improvements is to help make Lake City safer and more comfortable for multiple travel modes. The work may include:

  • ADA-compliant curb ramps, for smoother and better access
  • Curb bulbs and signalized crosswalks to improve pedestrian crossings
  • Improved intersection to promote safety for all roadway users


This work is funded by the nine-year voter approved Bridging the Gap Levy.
