Let the Move Seattle improvements begin!
We can’t thank you all enough for your help in passing the Transportation Levy to Move Seattle. Now we can move on to the fun part, getting down to the nuts and bolts of how the region will transform.
One exciting improvement is the Accessible Mt. Baker Project. It addresses the safety concerns for people biking and walking around the Mt. Baker light rail station.
Today you have the chance to review the project and give your feedback. Please join us at Seattle Department of Transportation's open house:

The proposed project would greatly enhance the walking environment around the transit center. The project also adds protected bike lanes that would connect the Cheasty Boulevard to Mt. Baker Boulevard, an important east/west connection from Beacon Hill all the way to Lake Washington.
The project would additionally improve transit access. If you’ve ever attempted to catch a bus from the Mt. Baker Sound Transit stop, you know the challenges of crossing Rainier Avenue and making your transfer in a timely manner. Relocating the bus stops to be on the same side of the street as the light rail makes a lot of sense and will increase everyone's safety.
We are so excited to see these kind of projects move forward.
