The Green Lake/Wallingford Paving &
Multi-Modal Improvements Project Starts in May
Thanks for your continued engagement with the Green Lake and Wallingford Paving & Multi-Modal Improvements project.
This winter, we incorporated your feedback and finalized the design of the project. Learn about what has changed since the last design milestone by reading our updated Feedback and Action Plan: What We Heard and What We’re Doing document. The designs for the N 50th St, Stone Way N, and Green Lake Way N intersection and the Stone Way portion of the project are still in progress and will be completed later this year.
Thanks to support and participation from community members and project neighbors, we’ve been able to finalize the design in a way that builds upon community feedback. Based on feedback and suggestions from many of you, the final design features:
- A more predictable intersection at E Green Lake Way N, N 71st St, and NE Ravenna Blvd, with new curb bulbs, a squaring up of the intersection, and designated space for people walking, biking, and driving
- A redesigned protected bike lane connection on Green Lake Way, which avoids adding a new signal at N 52nd St
- Updated lane layouts on Stone Way N and N 40th St to preserve on-street parking and make additional improvements for people walking
Construction: what comes next
We anticipate starting construction this May and completing construction in 2020. We’re currently in the process of selecting a contractor, who will help us determine our construction schedule and the order in which work is completed. When work begins, you can expect construction Monday through Friday with occasional weekend work as needed. We’ll continue to share information on our project webpage as we get closer to construction.
This month, you may notice Puget Sound Energy (PSE) construction crews in the area as a part of their gas main replacement work. We’ve been working proactively with PSE in planning their work so it’s completed prior to the start of our project construction. This joint coordination is an effort to maximize cost savings and reduce rework by completing PSE’s work under the road prior to repaving the street. Visit PSE’s project webpage to learn more about their work in the area or to register your email with the project team for periodic construction updates.
Please share this information with others who might be interested in receiving project information and construction updates. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
