The Safe Highways project was initiated by City staff in the Spring of 2017 to study the state highways within city limits—Bothell Way NE (SR 522) and Ballinger Way NE (SR 104)—and explore ways to make them safer, more accommodating to transit, and more walkable and bikeable. The project aims to:
Examine scenarios that improve access and connectivity while reducing mobility barriers for all types of travel, including pedestrian, bicycle, automobile, and public transit.
Improve area health and safety by increasing walkability and bikeability.
Identify needed safety improvements and corresponding remedies.
