Project Overview

We’re working closely with the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) to enhance safety, accessibility, and travel on Lake City Way NE. WSDOT plans to repave the corridor and upgrade ADA curb ramps as needed, and we’ll construct spot and intersection improvements to enhance walk-ability and safety for all travelers.

Project Design

The Lake City Way Corridor Improvement Project is in the early design phase. In order to inform design, we’re using the feedback gathered from the Lake City Way Traffic Safety Project Task Force in addition to collision and speed data we’ve collected.

The Lake City Way Traffic Safety Project Task Force was a collaborative effort to review street conditions and identify potential ways to make Lake City Way a safer corridor for all modes of travel. You can view their findings in the Lake City Way Traffic Safety Corridor Action Plan located in the materials section on our project webpage.

Project elements will be designed through 2019 and construction is expected to begin with the WSDOT-led repaving as soon as 2020.
