New traffic signal installed at busy Fremont intersection

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!

This project wasn’t funded via the Neighborhood Street Fund.

You can see the NSF-funded projects here: https://www.seattle.gov/transportation/projects-and-programs/programs/neighborhood-street-fund/past-projects with the second round of projects just having been selected for completion this year.

Correct. The question then…How did this get funded? Because the NSF selection process is about as transparent as a pint of Guinness.

Who does ribbon cutting for a stoplight?
Will the children remember this as they think back on the Trump years?

Who does ribbon cutting for a stoplight? Arrogant liberals, that’s who. And no ,but you will. Now, please tell us all here about the “Jimmy Carter years”. I also miss Clinton, and his wandering cigars. What will the children remember about Durkanville, the heroin, the meth and how their parents had to move to survive? Finally, what DID you and your family do with all that $$ Obama saved you after passing his ACA??? Did you also “keep your Dr.” too. Like your deductibles? Please join Elencrap and turn off MSLSD

This is a great addition to the neighborhood. It will be especially useful to the folks who will be living in the two new apartment buildings going in along that stretch on the east side of Leary. Now they won’t have to play Frogger just to get to the bus.
