Pedestrian Safety Improvements: Greenwood Ave N from N 137th St to N 145th St

Last updated: August 9, 2017

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is planning to construct pedestrian safety improvements on Greenwood Ave N, beginning this year. These improvements will help achieve Seattle's Vision Zero goal to end all traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030.

What's happening now        

SDOT has secured funding for design and construction of pedestrian safety improvements on the west side of Greenwood Ave N. Design is now underway, and construction will follow the completion of pedestrian safety improvements on the east side. Final design for the east side of Greenwood Ave N is now complete and construction is expected to begin this fall.

Project overview

The first phase of the project will construct a new sidewalk, planting strip, curb and gutter along the east side of Greenwood Ave N, between N 145th St and N 137th St, as well as a new pedestrian activated signal at N 137th St.

Other improvements will include Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant curb ramps at each intersection in the project area and pedestrian signal improvements at N 143rd and N 145th streets.

The second phase of the project will construct a new sidewalk, planting strip, curb and gutter along the west side of Greenwood Ave N, between N 145th St and N 137th St. This phase of the project will also include repaving work to improve the roadway surface of this section of Greenwood Ave N.

State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) Review

SDOT reviewed the Greenwood Avenue N Pedestrian Improvements Project and determined that it will not have a probable significant adverse impact on the environment. As a result, SDOT issued a Determination of Non-significance on January 30, 2017. This decision was made after review of a completed environmental checklist.
