2017 Your Voice, Your Choice: Parks and Street Elected Project

Queen Anne Area Upgrades

Crossing Upgrades

Project Description and Goals:
Multiple crossing locations along Queen Anne Ave N experience high pedestrian and vehicle volumes. Marking crosswalks improves visibility, and installing curb bulbs shorten crossing distances, make pedestrians more visible and calms traffic.

Project Solution(s):

Install a curb bulb on the northeast corner of 3rd Ave W and W Galer St 

Mark crosswalk at 6th Ave W and W Crockett St, north crossing

Mark crosswalk at Queen Anne Ave N and W Howe St, north crossing

Construction completed July 2018

4th Ave N, Raye St and Queen Anne Dr

Crossing Upgrades

Project Description and Goals:
On the north end of Queen Anne Dr, a large, 7-way intersection presents a tricky situation for all travelers making their way to or under, the SR-99 Aurora Bridge. Large swathes of pavement combined with a lack of crosswalks and ADA ramps makes this a unique and challenging space. We're modifying it to enhance safety and improve predictability.

Project Solution(s):

Install a raised crosswalk

Install a curb bulb

Add ADA accessible curb ramps

Trim landscaping

Construction anticipated October - December 2018

1st Ave N and Thomas St

Crossing Upgrades

Project Description and Goals:
The intersection of 1st Ave N and Thomas St experiences extremely high pedestrian demand and vehicle traffic due to its proximity to the Seattle Center. The intersection lacks a signal and marked crosswalk to assist pedestrian crossings. Adding a marked crosswalk and crossing beacons enhances safety for people walking, biking and driving.

Project Solution(s):

Install a marked crosswalk on the north side of 1st Ave N and Thomas St

Install a pair of crossing beacons

Construction anticipated 2019
