Large Neighborhood Street Fund (NSF) Projects: Fairview Ave E and Fairview Ave N Intersection

This project is complete

Project Overview

The Eastlake neighborhood plan identified safety improvements for the intersection of Fairview Ave E and Fairview Ave N and secured funding through the Cheshiahud Lake Union Loop and the Neighborhood Street Fund (funded by the Bridging the Gap levy). For more information on the loop please visit http://www.seattle.gov/parks/lakeunionloop/

The project goals are to:

  • Realign intersection to improve safety and shorten pedestrian crossing distance
  • Preserve as much parking as is feasible
  • Close the existing gap in pedestrian and bicycle facilities by providing a trail that connects to the existing gravel trail to the north and to the Fairview Ave Bridge to the south

Project Location

Fairview Ave E between Fairview Ave N and E Blaine Street

Project Description

As part of the Cheshiahud Lake Union Loop Trail, the project will build a 6 foot asphalt walkway along the waterside of Fairview Ave E and connect to the existing asphalt walkway at E Blaine Street.

Safety improvements will be made at the intersection of Fairview Ave E and Fairview Ave N:

  • Squaring up the intersection to reduce the crossing distance for pedestrians crossing Fairview Ave E
  • Building sidewalk on either side of the intersection
  • Reducing the southbound lane width of Fairview Ave N
  • Adding on-street parking to Fairview Ave N in the project area
  • Adding bicycle facilities along Fairview Ave N
