NE 125th St: Roadway Improvements
PROJECT STATUS AND SCHEDULE
The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will begin work on NE 125th St in April 2011. The work includes: repairing pavement, replacing drain grates, grinding out the old paint and painting new lane lines. Crews will also be conducting work on traffic signals.
Once this work is complete; SDOT will evaluate several locations for pedestrian crossing improvements.

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) has recommended changing the driving lane configuration on NE 125th Street from Roosevelt Way NE to 28th Ave NE. The objective for changing the lane configuration is to improve safety, reduce speeds, and better provide pedestrian and bicycle access. SDOT is working to improve safety for all users of the street – including drivers, pedestrians, cyclists, and transit users.
WHAT WE PLAN TO DO
SDOT proposes to:
We expect the new configuration to result in motor vehicle speeds that are more in line with the speed limit (30 mph), improved safety for motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists, and wider travel lanes to provide adequate space for motor vehicles.
These changes are scheduled to take place in spring 2011. This project is funded by the “Bridging the Gap” transportation levy approved by Seattle voters in 2006.
