NE 65th St is an arterial that moves people and goods throughout northeast Seattle. The street supports a diverse collection of retail shopping, restaurants, schools, parks, and activity centers, and the Roosevelt Link Light Rail station will bring additional bustle to the street in 2021.
Since 2012, there have been 3 fatalities, 1 serious injury, and 231 collisions along this busy corridor between NE Ravenna Blvd and 39thAve NE. Seattle is committed to Vision Zero, our plan to end traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030. Learn more at www.seattle.gov/visionzero.
We’re launching a collaborative process to review street conditions along NE 65th St. In June 2016, Councilmember Rob Johnson and members of the community marched along the street, asking the city to study the corridor. Community concerns are explained further at #Fix65th. Safety is our number one priority, and we are committed to preventing crashes and improving safety for all travelers by making street improvements.
Together with the community, we will determine the specific nature and design elements of the necessary changes. We’ll consider traffic calming, signal modifications, pavement repair, and pedestrian and bicycle safety enhancements.
Outreach & Schedule
In 2013, we conducted outreach to help update Seattle's Bicycle Master Plan. At that time we committed to working with the community to identifying transportation solutions for NE 65th St prior to implementing changes. We're now launching this effort.
