Pedestrian Safety Improvements: 3rd Avenue NW from NW 105th Street to NW 107th Street

Updated: 01/05/16

Project Description

The Seattle Department of Transportation is working to make 3rd Avenue NW safer and more comfortable for everyone. As part of that effort, SDOT will add new multi-use sidewalk on the west side of 3rd Avenue NW from NW 105th Street to NW 107th Street and constructing companion landings at NW 105th and NW 107th streets. Construction was completed in November 2015.

These improvements were identified by SDOT's Pedestrian Master Plan and Safe Routes to School. Most importantly, these types of pedestrian facilities improve safety for all roadway users.

Project Benefits

The goal of these pedestrian safety improvements is to help make 3rd Ave NW safer and more comfortable for multiple travel modes. This work includes:

  • A new multi-use sidewalk on the west side of 3rd Avenue NW from NW 105th Street to NW 107th Street
  • Curb bulbs and ramps on the southeast and southwest corners of the intersection at NW 107th Street and northwest and southwest corners of the intersection at NW 105th Street
  • Pedestrian crossing beacons at NW 107th St and 105th St
  • A relocated south-bound KC Metro bus stop
  • A pedestrian plaza at the entrance of Viewlands Elementary School with planting strip
  • Repaving the parking lane in front of the school

Funding

This work is funded by SDOT’s Safe Routes to School Program.
