35th Avenue SW Safety Corridor Walk and Talk

While Seattle is a very safe city and is on-track towards meeting its Vision Zero goals by 2030, we can always do better.

SDOT recently held a walk and talk event for Phase 2 of our 35th Avenue SW Road Safety Corridor Project.  The event provided the community who regularly use 35th Avenue SW to share their experiences all along the corridor.

We heard comments on speeding vehicles and the needs for safer crossings, additional enforcement and reviewing transit stops. Residents also expressed concerns about growth and developments that are in the works. And we heard feedback about the Phase 1 traffic conditions during peak hour, so we’ll be working to improve signal timing and coordination through the corridor.

The 35th Avenue SW Road Safety Corridor Project was launched in response to a number of collisions and long-standing community requests to reduce speeds and enhance pedestrian crossings. Unfortunately, traffic fatalities continue to happen on 35th Avenue SW. While we have made changes to the roadway over the years, conditions are right for more substantial changes.

The goals of this project are to reduce speeds, collisions and injuries; and improve conditions for users while maintaining acceptable transit and travel times on 35th Avenue SW.

SDOT continues to accept input and feedback on this project. If you have any comments about Vision Zero or the 35th Avenue SW Safety Corridor, contact Jim Curtin at jim.curtin@seattle.gov or at 206-684-8874.
