NE 153rd Pl Safe Routes to School

Construction Starts Tuesday, June 25th

We are making the area around Arrowhead Elementary more walkable, comfortable, and safe for students and other pedestrians! From June 25th until October 2019, we will be putting in a new sidewalk, angled parking, landscaping, and a new feature wall at the southeast corner of NE 153rd Pl and Juanita Drive NE.

Starting Tuesday, June 25th and throughout construction, the eastbound lane of NE 153rd PL will be closed from Juanita to 70th Ave NE to vehicles, bikes and pedestrians. A detour will be in place directing eastbound traffic to NE 155th PL - see detour map below.

Eastbound METRO bus riders are directed to use the stop in front of the old fire station (70th Ave NE & NE 153rd PL).  The eastbound bus stop located within the project limits will be temporarily closed during construction.  Local access to residents and businesses will be provided. The Guesthouse in particular is in the middle of the detour...please make it a point to support their business during construction.     

This project is funded by the WSDOT Safe Routes to School program ($673,594) and the City ($76,354). For questions, contact Kent Vaughan,, 425-398-8900.
