Update on Rapid Ride Improvements along Aurora Ave. N

Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) has announced the schedule for its sidewalk and traffic signal improvements for Metro’s E Line implementation.

The improvements include the installation of a new traffic signal at the intersection of North 95th Street and Aurora Avenue North, along with a number of new sidewalks on Aurora and some of its side streets. These sidewalks, where existing sidewalks are substandard or don’t exist, will give transit riders a safer and more pleasant path to and from their Rapid Ride stops on Aurora.

The project will also add a number of federally mandated Americans with Disabilities (ADA) curb ramps (although not at every Aurora intersection). Finally, the project provides funding for additional bus arrival signs along the corridor. Construction will be completed by the end of 2014.

A full list of projects with photos and maps is available online.
