Thackeray Ave NE & Latona Ave NE: NE 45th St to Burke-Gilman Trail

WHAT WE PLAN TO DO

Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is making bicycling easier and safer in the Wallingford Neighborhood. In an effort do this; SDOT will install an uphill bike lane on Latona Ave NE and downhill sharrow on Thackeray Pl NE and 2nd Ave NE between NE 45th St and the Burke-Gilman Trail. These changes are being made to help bicyclists get to the Wallingford Business District and the Burke-Gilman Trail. Bus service will not be affected and the corridor is not a designated freight route. A bicycle crossing improvement will be made at N 40th St and Latona Ave NE to help cyclists get across the intersection. Pavement repairs will be made on Thackeray Pl NE and metal drain grates will be replaced on Latona Ave NE  to better accommodate bicycle tires. These changes are happening to make complete streets to be better used by all forms of transportation.
