Lake to Bay Loop – Harrison Street Pedestrian Improvements

Last update: November 17, 2015

Construction Updates

Construction of Lake to Bay safety improvements complete

Crews have completed construction of the pedestrian improvements on W Harrison St in Lower Queen Anne, which began on August 3. Thank you for your patience during construction.

These new improvements will make it safer for people who walk, bike and drive through the intersections of W Harrison St with 1st Ave W and 2nd Ave W:

  • Curb extensions that shorten the crossing distance at crosswalks and improve the visibility of people waiting to cross
  • Curb ramps that meet current standards under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • New marked crosswalks


If you have any questions or concerns about this project, please contact the NSF Outreach Team at or 206-733-9361.

Project Description

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) carried out this pedestrian safety improvement project as part of the Neighborhood Street Fund (NSF) program.

W Harrison St is part of the Lake to Bay Loop, connecting Lake Union to Elliott Bay through Uptown, Lower Queen Anne, South Lake Union and Belltown.

The project team selected two intersections on W Harrison St for new curb extensions. The selected sites were chosen in conjunction with the city's Bicycle Master Plan,  and will complement future bicycle facilities in this area.


The Lake to Bay project is one of 12 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. NSF projects are identified and prioritized by communities, then sent to the Bridging the Gap Oversight Committee for final review and selection.

Project Schedule

The project reached final design in 2014. Crews began construction on August 3 and completed the project on November 13.
