3 Our mission, vision, and core values Mission: deliver a high-quality transportation system for Seattle Committed to 5 core values to create a city that is: Safe Interconnected Affordable Vibrant Innovative Vision: connected people, places, and products

4 Meeting purpose Project overview Concepts for consideration General Q & A Open house 4 Presentation overview

5 Present near term safety improvements Present a long-term sketch concept Gather community feedback 5 Meeting purpose

6 STATION 3 STATION 2 STATION 4 STATION 1 Community vision and background How can we improve all modes and make people spaces? Existing conditions Possible solutions Near term and long-term concepts Stations

7 Project overview The last 15 years… Dec 2014: Technical team generated ideas Tonight: Community review and feedback June: Present a proposed plan & implementation strategy –Short-term safety improvements ( ) –Mid-term safety improvement ( ) –Long term plan (TBD) 7

8 Guiding Principles Improve access to neighborhood destinations Create a network of streets, paths, and open space Respect the existing character and assets Establish a neighborhood and regional destination

9 Guiding Principles (cont) Help make the area more walkable, and prioritize forms of transportation in the immediate station area as follows: –Ped/Bike: Enhanced safety and comfort –Transit: Reliable and frequent –Freight: Maintain access and reliability –Auto: Calm and predictable Ensure diverse voices and traditionally underrepresented communities are heard and considered

10 Coordinated SDOT projects 10 Accessible Mt. Baker Rainier Beach Safety Improvements Rainier Ave S Road Safety Corridor Rainier & Dearborn Safety Improvements

11 Vision Zero Seattle’s plan to eliminate traffic deaths and serious injuries Street designs that prioritize safety Public education and engagement Targeted enforcement patrols 11

12 Rainier/MLK =76 Rainier/McClellan = 65 MLK/McClellan = 42 Rainier/Bayview = 34 MLK/Bayview = 18 Rainier/Forest = 16 * Includes crashes involving people walking or biking 12 Crashes Crash history

13 Near-term improvements (Phase 1) Widen sidewalks Shorten crossing distances Increase waiting areas North lane Mt Baker Blvd –Walk/Ped/Emergency access No right turns on red

14 Near-term improvements (Phase 2) Southside crosswalks (MLK & Rainier) Relocate Rte 7 & 8 bus stops adjacent to Link station 3-phase to 2-phase signal –Restrict left turns from MLK Modify surround signals Better utilize capacity on MLK

15 Long-term sketch concept Concept to meet overall guiding principles by: Moves bus connections adjacent to light rail station Restores the Olmstead Greenbelt Protected east/west crossing –Pedestrian and bicycle are separated from auto Allows for integrated open space Supports neighborhood plan and economic development Eliminates the bottleneck –Allows space for sidewalk and bike facilities –Predictable through movements for all users
