I-5 Offramp onto Olive Way

Crossing Upgrades

Project Description and Goals:
People traveling the I-5 freeway northbound can exit onto E Olive Way. However, due to its design, people exiting the freeway have limited visibility and must slow from a high rate of speed very quickly. These conditions make it challenging for pedestrians who are crossing the off-ramp to access downtown Seattle via Olive Way. Installing crossing beacons to alert people driving of pedestrians enhances safety.

Project Solution(s):

Install crossing beacons

Install new ADA compliant curb ramps

Construction anticipated October - December 2018

Crossing Upgrades

Project Description and Goals:
