STREETS | 25th Ave NE and NE 77th St

Crossing Improvements

Project Overview

The lack of safe, marked crossings to Dahl Playfield is a challenge for people traveling to the park. Seattle residents must either cross a busy street at an unmarked location, or travel to the only marked crosswalk that connects to Dahl Playfield at NE 80th St. By adding crossing improvements, we can effectively shorten pedestrian crossing distance, increase visibility, accessibility, and safety for all travelers.

Given the projects location, we’ll partner with Parks & Recreation to complete implementation, pending their approval.

Project Solutions

  • Install a new marked crossing on the north leg of NE 77th St across 25th Ave NE
  • Install an ADA compliant curb ramp on the NE corner
  • Install a curb bulb into 25th Ave NE on the north side of NE 77th St

Neighborhood: Wedgewood

Total Cost: $90,000
YVYC Funds: $90,000

Project Schedule and Updates

We anticipate construction as soon as October - December 2019.

STREETS | Burke Gilman Trail crossing Stone Way N at N 34th St
