Sidewalk Development Program: NE 125th Street
SDOT is planning to build a new sidewalk on the north side of NE 125th Street in 2013. The new sidewalk will extend the existing sidewalk in front of the Christian Science Church at 35th Avenue NE up the hill to 39th Avenue NE, where NE 125th Street becomes Sand Point Way NE.

NOTE: For a variety of reasons related to funding and scheduling, the NE 125th Street sidewalk project will be built after the NE 125th Street repaving project is completed. SDOT recognizes that this may extend the amount of time adjacent residents will experience construction impacts and we apologize for any inconvenience.
Construction of this project is expected to begin In August, 2013. More information will be posted to the top of this page when available.
Project purpose and funding
This project is identified as a high priority in the Seattle Pedestrian Master Plan, which is a long-term master plan to make Seattle the most walkable city in the nation. This project was also identified as a neighborhood priority by the North District Council, which submitted a proposal to build the project to the Neighborhood Street Fund program in 2007. Once built, many Lake City residents will have a dedicated walking path to travel along between their homes and the Lake City’s commercial area.
Funding for this project comes from the “Bridging the Gap” transportation levy approved by Seattle voters in November 2006.
