Pedestrian enhancements project on 15th Ave NW in Crown Hill to start this fall

Designs for the Neighborhood Street Fund have been finalized and the construction of various projects—including new pedestrian safety enhancements on 15th Ave NW—is expected to be constructed this year.

In Ballard, the plans for the 15th Ave NW and NW 83rd St Pedestrian Safety Enhancements are set to begin this fall. The enhancements will include a new pedestrian refuge island on 15th on the north side of 83rd, a pedestrian and bike signal, and enhanced bike lanes along NW 83rd St, which is a future neighborhood greenway. New crosswalks will be painted across 15th Ave NW, and new curb ramps will be placed at all four corners of the intersection.
