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

Project Description


click to view larger

The Seattle Department of Transportation is working to make 3rd Avenue NW safer and more comfortable for everyone. As part of that effort, SDOT is considering adding new sidewalk on the west side of 3rd Avenue NW from NW 105th Street to NW 107th Street and constructing companion landings at NW 105th Street and NW 107th Street. Construction could occur as early as the summer of 2015, but the timing and scope of the project will depend on funding, stakeholder feedback, and other factors.

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.
