$25.6 million in grants is coming to Seattle through Safe Streets and Roads for All for the construction of safer streets, new sidewalks, bike lanes, and intersection improvements.
Axios further reported:
The city plans to focus on intersections south of downtown where the highest number of serious or fatal pedestrian and bicycle accidents occur. In the last three years alone, nearly 20 people have been killed in SoDo, The Seattle Times reported.
The grant money has been earmarked for:
• 4 miles of protected bike lanes.
• 1.5 miles of new sidewalks.
• 4.5 miles of speed-reducing changes like speed bumps and strategic road narrowing.
• 117 intersection updates, including new signage, curb improvements and pavement markings.
