Public feedback needed on Seattle community designs

SEATTLE – The Washington State Department of Transportation is leading public discussions to refine designs for the future six-lane State Route 520 corridor in the Seattle area. WSDOT staff will share updated design options at an interactive open house from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 12, at the Museum of History & Industry, 2700 24th Ave. E., Seattle.

The open house will feature updated illustrations showing options for areas along the future SR 520 corridor in the Montlake neighborhood.

Geographic areas scheduled for discussions include the Shelby/Hamlin neighborhood, East Montlake Park and the planned SR 520 stormwater facility, the Montlake shoreline beneath the planned SR 520 highway, and medians and local traffic access on East Lake Washington Boulevard. WSDOT staff also will share their work on designs that integrate connections for bicycles, pedestrians and commuters.

Public feedback on the updated images and options for refinement will help drive future design options. This is the first of four interactive open houses planned this year in the Seattle Community Design Process, and builds on design open houses last fall. Materials from previous open houses are posted online. Future meetings will focus on the remaining areas on the Seattle side of the SR 520 corridor.

The meeting site is accessible to people with disabilities. Accommodations for people with disabilities can be arranged in advance by calling 206-770-3500.
