185th Street Corridor Strategy Survey

Posted to News

185th Street Multimodal Corridor Strategy

The City of Shoreline recently completed an initial outreach series to gather community and stakeholder input to help envision a corridor that will be safe for pedestrians and bicyclists; support bus and light rail transit service; address traffic flow; create gathering spaces; and encourage neighborhood businesses.

If you were unable to attend any of the events, you can view the open house presentation and displayed materials on the project webpage.

After reviewing information, please take the online survey which is linked on the project webpage. This survey will remain open through Sunday, November 25, 2018.

You may also use the hashtag #Shoreline185 to share your ideas and photos of the corridor or images of other places that include designs or features you would like to see reflected in the future 185th Street Corridor.

City Open House on Design of Shoreline Light Rail Stations

Posted to Events

When
Where
Shorewood High School — Commons and Theater; 17300 Fremont Ave N

Come to City sponsored open house to provide your input on design of Shoreline light rail stations & facilities.

In 2016, Sound Transit will begin the final design phase for the Lynwood Link light rail extension that will run through Shoreline. As part of that effort, beginning in mid-2016, Sound Transit will hold three public open houses to gather input on the design of the stations and related facilities at N 145th and N 185th Streets.

To ensure the community’s interests are adequately represented during Sound Transit’s design phase, the City will develop a set of guiding principles to help guide the design of the light rail stations and facilities in Shoreline.

On January 27, the City will hold an open house to gather your input. The open house will provide:

  • Background for the process to date and how to participate moving forward
  • An opportunity to comment on Draft Guiding Principles for Light Rail Facility Design
  • Images of possible design elements for stations and garages

North City Business District Street Light and Signal Pole Replacement

Posted to News

Construction Coming Soon!

Over the past several years, the street light poles and signal poles within the North City Business District have experienced significant paint failure. After successful negotiations with the original construction contractor, all of the street light poles and signal poles will be replaced within the district at no cost to the City. The contractor assigned to do the work is Prime Electric.

Street light poles between NE 172nd St and 15th Pl NE (just north of 180th St NE) along with all of the signal poles will be replaced.

What to Expect?

With the construction, there will be a variety of impacts that will result from the removal and installation of the poles. Below is a general list of what you can expect:

  • Construction impacts: Construction activity (noise and equipment) will be visible along the corridor and will impact street/sidewalk to facilitate construction. Lane closures will be in place as needed.
  • Driveways: some driveways may require short term temporary closures. These closures will be coordinated in advance with each business as needed.
  • Parking (during construction): Street parking may be impacted and reduced in areas where the poles are being replaced. These impacts will be temporary and will be restored upon completion of the new pole installation.
  • Bus Stops: Bus stops may be temporarily impacted resulting in temporary relocations of stops.

Schedule

  • Construction Start: April 2014
  • Construction Completion: Anticipated May of 2014
