Pedestrian Safety Improvements: NE 77th Street from 39th Avenue NE to 40th Avenue NE

Updated: 01/05/2016

Project Description

The Seattle Department of Transportation is working to make Seattle the most walkable city in the nation. As part of our Safe Routes to School program, SDOT added new sidewalk on the south side of NE 77th Street from 39th Avenue NE to 40th Avenue NE. Construction was completed in November 2015.

These improvements were identified by SDOT's Pedestrian Master Plan and Safe Routes to School Program. 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 NE 77th Street safer and improve the walking experience for all users, including students at Thornton Creek School. This work includes a new 6-foot sidewalk on the south side of NE 77th Street from 39th Avenue NE to 40th Avenue NE with curb ramps on all corners of NE 77th Street and 39th Avenue NE. The sidewalk will include gutters and planting strips.

Funding

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

Schedule

Construction was completed in November 2015.
