The intersection of NW 36th St and 1st Ave NW now has a new traffic signal.
The project was paid for by the city’s Neighborhood Street Fund, and was chosen in part because of its proximity to Our Beginning daycare center on the corner.
“Crossing NW 36th Street in Fremont can be challenging, especially for families with young children trying to reach a daycare center near the center of 1st Ave NW and NW 36th St,” the project proposal reads. “The lack of crossings along NW 36th St also makes it difficult for people to reach the Route 40 bus stop as well as shops, jobs, and the Burke-Gilman trail south of the street.”
The signal went live on Oct. 28, with kids from Our Beginning help turn it on for the first time.
Thanks Whitney from the Fremont Chamber of Commerce for the tip!
