Project Description


click to view larger

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

Project Benefits

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

Funding

This work is funded by Seattle’s Safe Routes to School program.

Schedule

These improvements are currently at 90 percent design. The project team expects to reach 100 percent design in spring 2014 with construction planned for summer 2014 when school is not in session.
