Spring 2024

We are excited to share conceptual designs to help move towards actualizing improvements on Lake Washington Boulevard. These designs are based on feedback we received from the community and traffic data.

View the proposed design concepts here.

After incorporating additional input from the community, these concepts will require additional design to further develop and implement.

Lake Washington Boulevard


$404,000 is allocated to this project for planning, design and construction.

Project Description

In partnership with the Seattle Department of Transportation and the community, Seattle Parks and Recreation is leading and managing the implementation of improvements to Lake Washington Boulevard to help promote pedestrian and bicycle use and increase safety for everyone who visits and travels along Lake Washington Boulevard. 

Informed by the Short-Term Recommendations in the Lake Washington Boulevard Visioning Process and Recommendations Report created by the Lake Washington Blvd Task Force, the Lake Washington Boulevard Renovations Project aims to improve sidewalks and pedestrian paths to be ADA-compliant and increase safety by adding stop signs, speed humps, raised crosswalks, and other traffic calming infrastructure. In this project phase, Seattle Parks and Recreation will not be installing a dedicated bike lane.
