SDOT Pedestrian Wayfinding Focus Groups

Focus Group Opportunity

The Seattle Department of Transportation is looking for 8 to 10 people to participate in a discussion about finding your way around the city on foot. This discussion is part of a year-long project to design better walking directions and information to encourage Seattleites and visitors to walk more and further. These meetings will provide the City with critical early input from those who have first-hand knowledge of wayfinding challenges in Seattle.

The discussion will take place over 2 hours on October 10th at the Central Library (1000 4th Ave, Seattle 98104). There will be an afternoon (2pm-4pm) and an evening (5:30-7:30) session. Volunteers must be available on this date to be considered. Refreshments will be provided. Participants will be acknowledged for their time with a $60 Safeway gift card.

Information from SDOT on LCW Work

Just South of 125th & LCW – Bus Stop Extension

Click Here for Construction Notice

The below message is information from Paul Elliott with SDOT Community Relations on May 2, 2018:

 “I’m sorry to hear that we’ve got people concerned about a permanent loss of valued on-street parking on Lake City Way.  The “no parking” a-frames that have appeared are indeed for construction. 

Our contractor is going to be nearly doubling the length of the southbound bus stop on Lake City Way, just south of NE 125th St.  Currently, the zone is 65-feet long and can only serve one bus at a time.  When there are two coaches that approach the zone, one bus must wait on the north side of the intersection, delaying bus patrons, while also causing traffic backups on both southbound Lake City Way and eastbound NE 125th St. Continue reading “Information from SDOT on LCW Work”
