Dexter Ave N Safety Improvements Project


Project Description

The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) is completing their utility work on Dexter Ave N for the north portal of the SR 99 tunnel. The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) has the opportunity to leverage their restoration work and make Dexter Ave N a safer street for all users. After analyzing the traffic data, SDOT is proposing to rechannelize the street from four lanes to three, with a center two-way left turn lane and right turn pockets. Additionally, the bicycle facility will be next to the curb, buffered from moving traffic by the parking lane.

Project Goals

  1. Increase safety for all users: pedestrians, bicyclists, transit, freight and vehicles.
  2. Reduce collision potential.
  3. Upgrade the bicycle facility to be consistent with the Bicycle Master Plan.
