Lake to Bay Loop – Harrison Street Pedestrian Improvements
Update: September 8, 2014
The Seattle Department of Transportation is planning to construct curb bulbs at intersections along W Harrison Street. These improvements will be completed as part of our Neighborhood Street Fund program and improve pedestrian mobility and safety.
Harrison Street is part of the Lake to Bay Loop that connects Elliot Bay to Lake Union through Uptown, Lower Queen Anne, South Lake Union and Belltown. However, today the corridor lacks marked crosswalks and pedestrian amenities.
The project team selected three intersections along W Harrison Street to which curb bulbs will be added. The selected sites were chosen in conjunction with the final Bicycle Master Plan update and will complement future bicycle facilities in this area.
The goal of these improvements is to allow safer crossings for pedestrians and improve mobility for all users. Curb bulbs help reduce crossing lengths and improve visibility between drivers and pedestrians. The work will include:
The work is one of the 12 projects selected by the Bridging the Gap Oversight Committee to be completed as part of the Neighborhood Street Fund program, which is funded by the Bridging the Gap (BTG) transportation levy, passed by voters in November 2006 and scheduled to end in 2015.
The project recently reached 90 percent design and project team expects to finalize design by the end of 2014. Construction will begin and be completed in 2015.
