Last updated: July 2, 2015
The Seattle Department of Transportation is constructing pedestrian safety improvements near 3rd Avenue NW, NW 56th Street and NW 55th Place. These improvements will be completed as part of our Neighborhood Street Fund program and improve pedestrian mobility and safety.
Project elements include:
The goal of these safety improvements is to allow multiple travel modes to function in the area and create safer crossings to the nearby West Woodland Elementary School. 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. In addition to 50% BTG funding, the other 50% funding for the project is from Safe Routes to School, a program that utilizes engineering and education to encourage students to walk and bike to school.
The project reached final design in 2014. Construction began June 15 and is anticipated to last 8 weeks, weather dependent. The project team will continue to keep the community informed as construction details become available.
