NE 50th Street and 12th Avenue NE lane closure

New traffic signal to enhance safety of neighborhood greenway

A single westbound lane closure will be required beginning  Monday, Oct. 20th  to provide access for crews to begin construction  on the installation of a new signal at Northeast 50th Street and 12th Avenue Northeast in the University District.

As part of the University Neighborhood Greenway, the Seattle Department of Transportation will be making improvements to the intersection including installing a new traffic signal, upgrading curb ramps and striping four new crosswalks. These improvements will improve pedestrian mobility and safety for all users of the street.

Work on this project is expected to be completed by the end of the year, weather permitting.
