Rainier Ave S and S Jackson St Safety Enhancements

Updated: December 19, 2023

What's happening now?

This is one of nine projects requested by community and selected by the Levy to Move Seattle Oversight Committee for the 2022-2024 cycle of the Neighborhood Street Fund. For the 2022-2024 cycle, we made changes to the typical NSF process. Instead of calling for new ideas, we revisited the large pool of unselected 2019 applications for projects located in geographic equity areas. Project design is underway and construction will occur in 2024. We’ll share updates on our webpage and through our email list.

Project Overview

The intersection of Rainier Ave S and S Jackson St is a busy intersection located in the Jackson Place and Little Saigon neighborhoods. During peak periods, long queues develop westbound on S Jackson St for left-turning vehicles to access southbound Rainier Ave S. The westbound left turn movement is currently permissive and turning vehicles must negotiate with oncoming traffic. The project will add a protected left turn phase and other signal improvements. Additional signs and markings may be considered during design to improve traffic flow and safety at the intersection.
