You may remember from way back in March that Wallyhood had a vote regarding NPSF projects. Well, the top ranked project, the RRFB at 43rd and Stone Way, is the one that’s going to get done for Wallingford! Here’s what SDOT says:
Provided this project is prioritized by the Neighborhood District Council, SDOT proposes to install a rectangular rapid flashing beacon (RRFB) system with bike and pedestrian push buttons at Stone Way N and N 43rd St.
SDOT also dissed on the other projects, either because they had another process to deal with them, they were too expensive, or they didn’t think they were worthy (e.g. not enough pedestrians for a requested crosswalk at Northlake way). This includes not just our neighborhood, but Fremont and Eastlake as well, so seeing as the crossing at 43rd and Stone is the only one approved, it’s a lock to get done.

Ried Haefer: Lake Union District Council (LUDC)

Brian O’Sullivan: Empty seat City University Community Advisory Committee (City of Seattle and U of W committee.)
