Lake City Way Corridor Improvement Project Community Drop in Sessions

Lake City Way NE (State Route 522) is one of the busiest arterial routes in Northeast Seattle. The 3.67-mile-long corridor (from I-5 to the city limits at NE 145th St) has seen a high volume of collisions over the years. The roadway facilitates travel to and from the city, supports thriving businesses, hosts frequent transit routes, and functions as “Main Street” for residents in this part of the city.

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will be working closely with the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) to enhance safety, accessibility, and travel on Lake City Way NE. WSDOT plans to repave the corridor and upgrade ADA curb ramps, and we will construct spot and intersection improvements to enhance walkability and safety for all travelers.

There will be two Drop in information sessions regarding this project:

Lake City Way Corridor Improvement Project
