Info From SDOT Regarding Changes Around 125th and LCW
The Seattle Department of Transportation is working to improve transit and pedestrian accessibility along Lake City Way with an improved bus stop and repaired sidewalks. In 2018, the southbound bus stop on Lake City Way at NE 125th St was expanded to give access to two buses at the same time. Now, it’s time to expand the busy northbound bus stop on the other side of the intersection.
Here’s what we’ll do:
• Move the bus stop closer to 125th St. This will make it easier to transfer to or from westbound and eastbound buses.
• Make the bus zone longer. The new stop will be able to fit two buses at a time, so that buses don’t have to wait and slow down traffic for everyone. This is important since a bus comes to this stop every 3 minutes during the PM peak.
• Add Real-Time Information sign. This will show waiting passengers when their bus will arrive.
• Preserve loading zones for businesses. Expanding the bus stop requires removing 6-8 one-hour parking spots along the east side of Lake City Way, but loading zones will remain.
• Repair sidewalks. New sidewalks will be constructed on both sides of Lake City Way between 30th Ave NE and NE 125th St.
These improvements are planned for 2020, and are funded by the 9-year Levy to Move Seattle, approved by voters in 2015.
