Beacon Hill Station Access and Mobility Study

Beacon Hill Station

Updated: September 27, 2019

What’s happening now?

Beacon Ave Mobility Improvements has be selected as a Neighborhood Street Fund project for the 2019-2021 Program Cycle!  Special thanks to the Beacon Hill community for their attendance and active participation in Station Access and Mobility Study events, meetings, and surveys! The survey results will help determine potential improvement projects near the Beacon Hill Light Rail Station and the neighborhood.

Project Overview

We launched a study in early 2018 that built on ideas generated by residents through the Neighborhood Plan Update (2009) and other city and community plans. 

This study will look at:

  • Station and neighborhood multimodal access and circulation improvements
  • Identify urban design recommendations to address issues of safety, placemaking, activation, wayfinding, and equitable and universal access
  • Conduct a feasibility assessment of these improvements
  • Prepare streetscape concept plans for adoption if criteria articulated in Streets Illustrated (the City’s Right-of-Way Improvements Manual) are met
  • Understand community priorities and identify potential funding partners
