Overview of upcoming work as of May 17, 2019
As you may have already seen, crews finished installing final striping earlier this week on 35th Ave NE between NE 47th and NE 91st streets. Crews will take a short break while we review all work items for the project. Crews plan to return to the corridor in late May / early June to complete various tasks on the final project checklist and any final restoration that is needed. During the break, traffic control and parking restrictions on 35th Ave NE will be removed.

Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation during construction on 35th Ave NE.
A new design for 35th Ave NE:
Now that final striping including a center turn lane has been installed on 35th Ave NE, please look out for each other and pay close attention to the rules of the road that everyone must follow:
  • Slow down and follow the speed limit
  • Speed is the critical factor in the severity of collisions
  • Speed contributes to 25% of traffic fatalities citywide
  • Stop for people walking at all intersections, even if there is not a marked crosswalk
  • Under Washington state law, people riding bicycles have a legal right to ride in the roadway
  • People driving should maintain at least 3 feet of distance when passing a person riding a bicycle
  • Look twice before opening your car doors to ensure there are no people riding bicycles approaching
  • People riding bicycles can use the center turn lane to make left turns or may choose to make two-stage left turns using a cross street or crosswalk
It often takes a few weeks for people to get used to a new street design. We’ll continue to keep an eye on how things are working. We previously committed to evaluating the posted speed limit on the street. In about a month, we’ll study speeds on 35th and make additional changes, if needed, based on observations and data. Thanks for slowing down and looking out for each other.
