Neighborhood Crossing Improvements

We’re making crossing improvements in several locations throughout the City of Seattle to improve places for people walking, biking, and driving. Construction started earlier this January and will last through early 2019.

What’s happening now?

Work is nearly complete! Check out our progress by location below.

35th Ave NE/NE 135th St/Erickson Pl NE

  • We will install a Rapid Flashing Beacon (RFB) later this summer, once the equipment is available from the manufacturer.
  • You may see crews in the area cleaning the work site in the next 10-12 weeks.

30th Ave S/S Graham St

  • We have installed a temporary handrail at the new retaining wall along the northwest corner of the intersection. We will be back as soon as late July to install the permanent handrail.
  • We will install bollards at the entrance to Chief Sealth Trail (where the trail meets S Graham St) to prevent vehicles from entering the trail. We will complete installation along with the handrail for the retaining wall.

35th Ave SW

  • SW Dawson St
    • SW Dawson St is now open to all traffic and access to Camp Long has been restored.
    • We will return later this fall to complete installation of the traffic signal and install crosswalks.
  • SW Juneau St & SW Kenyon St
    • Permanent striping will be installed later this fall, along with installation of crosswalks at 35th Ave SW/SW Dawson St.

Clay St/Alaskan Way

  • We have suspended work and are coordinating with BNSF to repair the signals and safety arms for the railroad.
  • We expect to resume within 6-8 weeks. Once work resumes, it will be completed in approximately 2 weeks. 

We will continue to post updates on this webpage. We will let nearby residents and neighbors know about upcoming work prior to work resuming at any location.

What to expect?

Construction impacts will vary by location and we will address each site uniquely through our construction notices (see below for site-specific information). In general, please expect:

  • Typical work hours from 7 AM – 4 PM, Monday through Friday
  • Noise, vibrations, and dust during work hours
  • Equipment and materials near the project area
  • “No Park” signs placed in work area 72 hours in advance of work starting
  • Temporary and intermittent traffic and lane restrictions and/or pedestrian detours; signage and flaggers may direct people through the work zone
