Project Description

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is planning to construct pedestrian and bicycle improvements in the Fremont/Wallingford neighborhood. This project will include:

  • A new sidewalk on the west side of Stone Way N, south of N 34th Street
  • A new sidewalk on the south side of N Northlake Way at Waterway 22
  • A striped crosswalk on the west side of Stone Way N at N Northlake Way
  • New curb ramps, compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards, on the west side of Stone Way N and on the south side of N Northlake Way
  • A new right-turn only lane on southbound Stone Way N, north of N 34th Street
  • The southbound lanes on Stone Way N, south of N 34th Street, will be reduced to one, while the two northbound lanes on Stone Way N, south of N 34th Street, will remain intact


Project Benefits

The goal of this project is to improve the flow of bicycle, pedestrian, car and truck traffic that converges in this area. These sidewalks will help define the entrance to N Northlake Way, west of Stone Way N and provide access management to the adjacent driveway.  


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 expire in 2015.


This project reached final design in 2014. Construction is anticipated to start this fall and will last for approximately 4 weeks. The project team will continue to keep the community informed as construction details become available.
