SDOT to Channelize NE 75th

The Seattle Department of Transportation is asking for the community’s feedback on four proposals for the NE 75th corridor.  You can see the four proposals here: NE 75th St Proposals

Your feedback is requested at these two community meetings:

  • Wednesday, July 24th, 7-9PM in the Fellowship Hall (downstairs) at Wedgwood Presbyterian Church (8008 35th Ave NE)
  • Thursday, July 25th, 1-3PM in the Fellowship Hall (downstairs) at Messiah Lutheran Church (7050 35th Ave NE)

There are also these improvements that will happen in the near future:

  • Photo enforcement cameras for the Eckstein school zone on NE 75th Street ($ from these to be used for road/pedestrian safety projects near schools city-wide)
  • Traffic calming on the non-arterial streets near Eckstein (SDOT will work with residents before installation of traffic calming devices such as speed bumps)
  • New crosswalk at 28th Avenue NE and NE 75th Street
  • New pedestrian countdown signals at several intersections
  • Crossing improvements at 9th Avenue NE and NE 75th Street (near the entrance to southbound Interstate 5)
  • Spot parking restrictions throughout the area to improve sight lines

SDOT will come again and ask for our feedback on the following longer-term projects:

  • Channelization improvements on Banner Way/NE 75th Street between NE 80th Street and 15th Avenue NE
  • New left turn pockets on 35th Avenue NE at NE 75th Street
  • Bicycle facilities on NE 75th Street east of 35th Avenue NE connecting to the newly completed Neighborhood Greenway on 39th Avenue NE
