Project Description

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) plans to remove the pedestrian bridge that crosses over Holman Rd NW at 13th Ave NW and install a traffic signal at the intersection for people walking and biking. There are currently no signalized crossings along the half mile stretch between Holman Rd NW and 6th Ave NW (where the QFC is located) and the top of the hill at Holman Rd NW and Mary Ave NW. In 2016, the Holman Rd NW and 13th Ave NW Signal project was one of 12 selected by the Levy to Move Seattle Oversight Committee to be funded through SDOT’s Neighborhood Street Fund (NSF) program. The NSF program funds projects requested by the community. When complete, this project will improve safety, predictability, and accessibility for people walking, biking, and riding transit along Holman Rd NW.

Project elements

  • A new pedestrian and bicycle signal at Holman Rd NW at 13th Ave NW
  • Removal of the existing pedestrian bridge
  • Possible new public plaza space at the northeast corner of this intersection (where the pedestrian bridge stairs are currently located)
  • Additional lighting at the bus stop on Holman Rd NW

Project Benefits

  • Additional opportunities for all travelers to comfortably cross the intersection
  • Improved sightlines for people driving
  • Make the Holman Road NW corridor a viable route for oversized vehicles
  • Increased visibility of transit travelers

Early Design Concept

The NSF program will have three 3- year cycles to select, design, and build projects.  We're now gearing up to engage the community in design of the projects selected in 2016. We'll soon reach out with more information and gather input from each community. Construction outreach will begin in late 2017 or early 2018, once the design for each project is final.

Public Outreach and Engagement

We’ve been coordinating outreach with the North Seattle Neighborhood Greenways & School Safety Project. This included an outreach event on Saturday, February 4. The display boards from the event can be viewed here.

There will be additional ways to engage with the project team through the design process this year. We will seek input on the development of the new public plaza space at the northeast corner of this intersection (where the pedestrian bridge stairs are currently located).

Project Funding

Funding comes from the 2015 voter-approved, nine-year Levy to Move Seattle, which will improve safety for all travelers, maintain streets and bridges, and invest in reliable, affordable travel options for a growing city. The levy includes $24 million to continue the Neighborhood Street Fund program over the nine years.

SDOT’s Freight Spot Improvement Program has committed funding for the removal of the existing pedestrian bridge.
