If you missed Saturday’s public meeting about the 35th Ave NE Paving Project with the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) and City Councilmember Rob Johnson, meeting materials are available online at http://www.seattle.gov/transportation/docs/2017_1021_35thAveNE_OpenHouseMeetingMaterials.pdf.
The meeting materials from SDOT include a project overview, conceptual designs, conceptual views of the intersections at NE 65th St and NE 75th St, and questions and answers about the project (including outreach, bike lanes, traffic, parking, and construction).
If you still have questions or comments, please stop by SDOT’s booth at the Wedgwood Community Council’s Trick-or-Treat event on Tuesday, October 31. They’ll be in the QFC parking lot (8400 35th Ave NE) from 4 – 6 PM.

Is the council weighing in on this project? If so what’s your position?Many of us gave input about our concern with aspects of the plan including protective bike lane and limited parking etc. I’ve contacted SDOT before and after mtg along with city Council. Very disappointed with the dismissive attitude our our representatives.
Hello Chris we have not formally weighed in on the project. We have taken data from our members and some polling that we did over the course of the last year and have echoed many of the neighbors concerns regarding the paving project and the addition of a protected bike lane. The data reflected a 60/40 split over yay or nay. The sampling was smaller and only reflected around 300 people. We had shared that info with Scott Kubly at a D4 Leadership forum that Rob Johnson puts on quarterly. We have also shared the data directly with Rob, and the SDOT outreach folks. We have also met with Ravenna Bryant and shared info with the NEDC last year. We have done outreach in Nov 2016 we again had meetings in March 2017 June and September. The consensus has been we do not and will not endorse the bike lanes “WE” would like safer crossings at the post office at 80th and turn lanes at 75th and 35th. pedestrian improvements have been at the core of our requests.
