Pedestrian Safety Improvements: 7th Avenue W and W McGraw Street
The Seattle Department of Transportation is working to make Seattle the most walkable city in the nation. As part of that effort, SDOT is starting preliminary design of pedestrian transportation safety improvements at 7th Avenue W and W McGraw Street. Improvements would be constructed as early as summer of 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 improvements include:
One final component is a new open space for the community to enjoy on the southwest corner of the intersection. The space may have landscaping, grass and native, flowers, etc., based on feedback from the community.

This work is funded by SDOT’s Safe Routes to School Program.
These improvements are currently in early design. Construction could occur as early as the summer of 2016, but the timing and scope of the project will depend on funding, stakeholder feedback, and other factors.
