Dignified I-5 Crossing at NE 70th – thanks to RNA & NE Greenways

Thanks to RNA president Scott Cooper (holding up check) & NE Greenways, Andres Salomon, for addressing the I-5 pedestrian crossing at NE 70th St.

$381,000 has been committed by the City of Seattle to support this work.

This I-5 overpass is a major thoroughfare for people walking, biking, and driving, providing one of very few connections east/west between the Roosevelt and Green Lake neighborhoods across I-5. Despite its importance and heavy use the overpass and adjacent intersections remain dangerous and dif cult to navigate for all users.

Applicant Solution

  • All-way stops at NE 70th St and 8th Ave NE and at NE 71st St and 6th Ave NE
  • Curb bulbs and crosswalks at NE 70th St and 8th Ave NE and at NE 71st St and 6th Ave NE
