The Seattle Department of Transportation has proposed improvements to the stretch of Dexter Ave N between Mercer and Nickerson that it says are “designed to benefit everyone who uses the street, including commuters, truck drivers, bus passengers, pedestrians, and bicyclists.”
The project would include:
- Repaving Dexter Ave N
- Installing bike lanes on both sides of the street that are separated from vehicle traffic by a parking lane
- Removing the two-way left turn lane
- Providing dedicated left-turn lanes at busy intersections
- Providing dedicated load zones for businesses that need them
- Providing in-lane bus stops to improve transit speed and reliability
- Installing dedicated bus islands
SDOT will be holding an open house regarding the plan from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 29 in Conference Room A at the Seattle Center’s Center House.
If you can’t make it to the meeting, public comments may be submitted via e-mail to email@example.com, or by calling 206-684-7583.
The project, if approved, would be funding Seattle’s Bridging the Gap Levy.
