Safe Routes to School Safety Improvements: NW 65th St and 18th Ave NW
Last Updated: December 19, 2014
SDOT began construction of pedestrian safety improvements near Salmon Bay School on November 10.
The week of December 22, crews will work on the south side of NW 65th Street constructing curb ramps, pouring sidewalk/driveways and paving. All of this work is weather permitting. Once this work is completed, crews will continue to landscape and stripe the roadway. The project is expected to be complete in January 2015.
During construction you can expect:
- Lane restrictions on NW 65th Street
- Traffic restrictions on 18th Avenue NW including southbound travel only and no right turns from NW 65th Street to 18th Avenue NW
- Parking and driveway restrictions near the work area
- Construction during normal work hours, between 7 AM and 6 PM
- Noise, dust and vibration associated with concrete removal and paving

The Seattle Department of Transportation is planning to make it safer and easier for kids, neighbors and families to walk in your neighborhood. SDOT is planning to construct safety improvements in 2014 in front of Salmon Bay School, at the intersection of NW 65th Street and 18th Avenue NW.
These changes will improve safety for everyone who uses the street. Project elements include:
- Curb bulbs to shorten the distance for pedestrians crossing the street
- New curb ramps to make the sidewalk more accessible to people with disabilities as well as people with strollers and kids on bikes
- Crosswalks will be marked for pedestrians at each corner
The goal of these pedestrian safety improvements is to help make it safer and more comfortable for kids and families to walk and bike to school. The work includes:
- Sidewalk repair along the walking route to and from Salmon Bay School
- Curb ramps to improve access
- Curb bulbs to shorten the pedestrian crossings and make pedestrians more visible to drivers
This work is funded by Seattle’s Safe Routes to School program.
These improvements reached 100 percent design in July 2014. The project will move to construction as early as November 2014. Construction will be complete in early 2015.
