|Thank you to everyone who attended our presentation at the|
Montlake Community Club board meeting on June 11. We presented the proposed design for Segment 2 and gathered feedback. Based on community interest, we are planning site visits with community representatives to the four intersections included in the design to better understand concerns.
(Editors note: SDOT has not yet shown up for the planned site visits with our community representatives).
We heard interest in the following design elements: A protected left-turn for southbound traffic on 23rd Ave E for vehicles turning left onto eastbound E John St. Enhanced safety and access for people crossing at 23rd Ave E and E Aloha St. Fixed, hard barriers instead of “tough posts” (the flexible white posts) at 23rd Ave E/E Ward St and 23rd Ave E/E Louisa St. Enhanced safety and access for people crossing 23rd Ave E and E Lynn St. We will continue to work with our project team to review design and incorporate community feedback where possible.
We are now in Segment 2 design which includes crossing and transit stop improvements to enhance safety, calm traffic, and reduce speeds. This is part of our Vision Zero program, which aims to end traffic deaths and serious injury by 2030. The current design includes:
24th Ave E/E Lynn St:
24th Ave E/E Louisa St:
23rd Ave E/E Ward St:
23rd Ave E/E John St:
|Over the next few months, we will continue to refine design and make updates where possible. We are also working with our partners at King County to identify and confirm transit stop improvements throughout the corridor. We expect to hit our 60% design milestone as soon as early September. We will share design updates through our project webpage.|
