Hey SDOT… Make 6th Ave NW a Safe Routes to School

Another weekend, another car crash on NW Market Street. For those who live near the east end of Market, between 4th Ave NW & 6th Ave NW, you know how dangerous these intersections can be for pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers. Cars fail to stop at the crosswalk used daily by West Woodland Elementary students, blowing right through the red light even with a crossing guard present.

Car crash near 6th Ave NW & NW Market Street on Saturday, June 11, 2016

What is the problem?

6th Ave NW could be a well loved street for families to walk and bike to school and to the Burke Gilman Trail, but it has dangerous intersections to cross – like NW Market Street – that needs to be fixed.

Who is involved?

Seattle Neighborhood Greenways is working to empower Ballard Greenways, Greenwood-Phinney Greenways, Fremont Greenways, and residents of the West Woodland Neighborhood in Ballard.

Get Involved!

February 2016 Ballard District Council approved Neighborhood Park & Street Fund money for intersection safety improvements at 6th NW and NW 65th. We need your support to make changes at 6th Ave NW & NW Market Street. Tell Seattle Department of Transportation to make 6th Ave NW a Safe Routes to School.
