Northgate Pedestrian Bridge - Tiger Grant Proposal 2014


The City of Seattle, along with its partners at King County Metro, Sound Transit, WSDOT and North Seattle College (NSC), have requested a Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant from the US Department of Transportation.  The TIGER grant was in the amount of $15 million, and would help fund construction of the Northgate Link Light Rail Station Non-motorized Access Project, which includes a pedestrian and bicycle bridge crossing Interstate 5 (I-5) and other pedestrian and bicycle improvements at the Northgate Transit Center and the Sound Transit’s Link Light Rail Northgate Extension project.

The proposed bridge will extend the reach of the existing Northgate Transit Center and the future Sound Transit Link light rail station for pedestrians and bicycles. This will allow large numbers of people to access the Sound Transit system and regional bus connections by walking and biking. The need for this project has been identified in a number of Seattle’s plans. Bicycle and pedestrian improvements were identified as priorities by the community during the development of the Northgate Coordinated Transportation Investment Plan. Support has continued to be very strong during stakeholder involvement for the Northgate Catalyst project of the PSRC’s Growing Transit Communities effort. The Northgate pedestrian and bicycle bridge is also identified within the PSRC’s Regional Bike Network as a key connection.
