In November, community members came together to remember two of our neighbors who were killed while walking in crosswalks on NE 65th Street in 2017.
In response to the dangerous conditions for all people who use NE 65th Street to get around the neighborhood, RBCA, the Roosevelt Neighborhood Association and NE Seattle Greenways formed the #Fix65th coalition in 2016 to advocate for safety improvements. The need for safety improvements continues to be evident as people continue to be killed and seriously injured in collisions involving drivers of motor vehicles on NE 65th Street.
In response, the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) started a collaborative process to review safety on NE 65th Street with the goal of improving safety for all modes. They developed a proposed street design concept based on community input, citywide modal plan recommendations, and the results of their traffic modeling. They expect to start construction to implement improvements next summer.
The project is still in design and SDOT invites community members to participate in a drop-in session to see the latest for NE 65th Street. Stop by anytime during one of the sessions to learn about project progress, review materials, talk with project staff, and share feedback.
