NE 43rd St Improvements Project

Updated: 1/29/2019

The City of Seattle has begun the development of the NE 43rd St Improvements project. This project will construct streetscape and pedestrian improvements on NE 43rd St from Brooklyn Ave NE to 15th Ave NE.  A priority for the design of this project is to optimize access to the new light rail station for all users and we are seeking your assistance to help ensure that happens.

On Tuesday, February 19th from 6:30pm to 8:00pm at the University Temple United Methodist Church, UW partners from the City of Seattle are looking for students with disabilities to give feedback on a upcoming project concerning access to the UW campus, local businesses, and the new light rail station on NE 43rd Street. The purpose of the focus group is to receive feedback and ideas from members of the disabled community to optimize each of the 4 design alternatives for accessibility.

Please email the project manager, Janet Mayer, at janet.mayer@seattle.gov to participate in the focus group, and to share any accommodations/access needs you may require to attend.

Date: Tuesday, February 19th
Time: 6:30pm to 8:00pm
