District 6 — Project Updates

STREETS | 15th Ave NW and NW Market St

Crossing Improvements

Project Overview

The existing signal at 15th Ave NW and NW Market St does not have an accessible pedestrian signal (APS), which communicates important crossing information to people with low vision or are blind. Installing an APS improves accessibility, safety and predictability for all travelers at this busy intersection.

Project Solutions

  • Install APS at the existing signal

Neighborhood: Ballard

Total Cost: $35,000
YVYC Funds: $35,000

Project Schedule and Updates

We anticipate construction as soon as early 2020.

STREETS | 8th Ave NW and Leary Ave NW

Crossing Improvements

Project Overview

Bike lanes on 8th Ave NW provide a north-south connection to the Burke Gilman Trail (BGT) and requires travelers to first cross the intersection at 8th Ave NW and Leary Way NW to access the trail. Limited sightlines and tight corners in an active freight and industrial district create a challenging crossing. Upgrading the crossing increases safety, accessibility, visibility and predictability for all travelers.

Project Solutions

  • Install a new bike box
  • Provide additional wayfinding

Neighborhood: Ballard

Total Cost: $90,000
YVYC Funds: $90,000

Project Schedule and Updates

We anticipate construction as soon as early October - December 2019.

STREETS | N 39th St and Phinney Ave N

Crossing Improvements

Project Overview

N 39th St experiences high traffic volumes and vehicle speeds on a weekly basis, serving as a commuting route for many Seattle residents. Phinney Ave N provides a pedestrian connection to the Fremont businesses. The intersection also supports an unmarked crossing with an existing curb bulb on the southwest corner of the intersection.

Upgrading the crossing enhances accessibility, and safety and visibility for all travelers.

Project Solutions

  • Install a new flashing beacon on the west crossing of N 39th St at Phinney Ave N
  • Install new ADA compliant curb ramps

Neighborhood: Fremont

Total Cost: $90,000
YVYC Funds: $90,000

STREETS | NW 40th St and NW 41st St, and Leary Way NW

Crossing Improvements

Project Overview

Leary Way NW connects travelers to the Burke Gilman Trail (BGT), local neighborhood communities such as Ballard and Fremont, and numerous transit stops. Despite the many destinations Leary Way supports, there is a lack of safe, marked crossing locations along the corridor.

Installing refuge islands improves pedestrian visibility and accessibility, and calms traffic. We’re working closely with the Seattle RapidRide Program to ensure that our project will not impact the potential future 2024 Seattle RapidRide Network: Fremont corridor improvements.

Project Solutions

  • Install refuge islands with tuff curb and posts along Leary Way NW at the intersections of NW 40th St and NW 41st St

Neighborhood: Fremont

Total Cost: $40,000
YVYC Funds: $40,000

Project Schedule and Updates

We anticipate construction as soon as early October - December 2019.

STREETS | Ashworth Ave N between NW 80th St and NW 85th St

Crossing Improvements

Project Overview

Due to high vehicle speeds and traffic volumes, traffic calming is planned on Ashworth Ave N, between NW 80th St and NW 85th St, to increase pedestrian and neighborhood safety.

Project Solutions

  • Install speed humps along Ashworth Ave N, location to be determined

Neighborhood: Greenlake

Total Cost: $20,000
YVYC Funds: $20,000
