Pedestrian Signal Upgrade at 28th Ave NW and NW Market St.

We’re pleased to announce that SDOT will upgrade the existing pedestrian signal to a full traffic signal at 28th Ave NW and NW Market St. this month.  The project will take approximately four weeks from the time the work begins to the time the signal is fully operational. During the installation work, one signal poles will be installed on the southwest corners of the intersection. Note that while the installation is taking place, parking in the immediate area will be restricted.

We get a lot of questions here at SDOT about why we decide to make signal changes in various locations.  This location meets the criteria for a new traffic signal because of the high volume of traffic, collision history, the distance to the next signalized intersection as well as nearby bus stops.

The signal is being funded through the SDOT General Fund and Bridge the Gap Fund.  For more information about our signal program, click here.
