You’ve probably seen the ongoing greenway construction along several blocks of NW 58th St, and it sounds like several of the components will be completed in July. The 58th St greenway is being installed as part of a grid of safe streets for both pedestrians and bikers around the city.

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) tells us that this week they’ll be getting underway with putting in 18 speed bumps along the corridor. SDOT says the speed bump construction will mean significant short-term parking impacts, so they’ll be placing out signs to alert drivers of the parking restrictions. SDOT notes that once the speed bumps are installed, they will not have an impact on parking.
Crosswalk and crossbike striping will begin in the next couple weeks at 20th and 32nd Avenues NW, and painting, reflectors and signs will be installed around the partial diverter at 15th Ave NW, along with new 20 mph signs along NW 58th St. The rectangular rapid flash beacons will be put in on 24th Ave NW next month. SDOT says the final pieces of the project include installing wayfinding signs, stop signs, greenway signs, and bicycle pavement parking in late July.
