The Seattle Department of Transportation is hosting 3 design workshops on how to improve traffic safety near Seattle schools. The first workshop occurred in West Seattle on May 20th. The next two workshops are scheduled next week: Northeast Branch Library on May 27th, 6-7:30PM and Garfield Community Center on May 29th, 6-7:30PM. The workshops will include a presentation and discussion on road design treatments and a “walk about” intended to provide examples of traffic barriers and potential opportunities. These workshops are part of an effort to improve safety near schools through a combination of street improvements, education, encouragement, enforcement, and evaluation; and builds on work already being done through the City of Seattle’s Safe Routes to School program.
