Work to improve the pedestrian crossing on Holman Road at 13th Ave NW is set to start this fall, with plans to construct a new marked crosswalk and signal, and widening the Crown Hill Park path to make it ADA compliant.
The signal project was selected in 2016 as one of 12 city projects by the Levy to Move Seattle Oversight Committee, funded by the Seattle Department of Transportation’s Neighborhood Street Fund (NSF) program. It was chosen because of the crossing’s proximity to nearby schools and the Crown Hill Park; community members were concerned about students crossing at street level and made the request for the new traffic signal. There are currently no signalled crossings along the half-mile stretch between Holman Rd NW and 6th Ave NW and the top of the hill at Mary Ave NW.
Construction will be during weekdays, Monday through Friday from 7am to 4pm. Work to install the signal and new crosswalk markings is expected in October.
