The Lake City Way Traffic Safety project has scheduled another “crosswalk action” to highlight pedestrian-safety issues on Lake City Way NE.  On Monday, September 29 at 4:30 PM everyone is invited to join in for a police-escorted march through the crosswalks at NE 125th Street and Lake City Way NE.  Meet at the Bartell’s at the northwest corner of the intersection.

The Lake City Way Traffic Safety Project is being coordinated by the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT).  The project was launched in March 2014 and is an effort, coordinated by SDOT, to use engineering, enforcement and education to reduce serious injuries and deaths on Lake City Way NE.  Once again, as was done in March, at the September 29 “crosswalk event” police will be present and will be ticketing speeders on Lake City Way NE.
