Project Description

click to view larger

The Seattle Department of Transportation is planning to construct pedestrian transportation safety improvements along Lake City Way NE and 24th Avenue NE. 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 bulbs on the southwest corner of 24th Avenue NE 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



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.


These improvements are currently in design, approximately 90 percent complete. The project team expects to reach 100 percent design in mid-2014 and begin construction in January 2015.
