Join Queen Anne Greenways to talk pedestrian safety and Safe Routes to Schools projects
Posted on March 23rd, 2014 by Laura Fonda
The next Queen Anne Greenways meeting is this Tuesday, March 25th, 6:30pm, at the Queen Anne Library. The group is open to all residents interested in pedestrian and bicycle safety, and according to the organizers, if you’re interested in “getting your hands dirty advocating for pedestrian and bicycle safety, this is your meeting.”
On Tuesday, Queen Anne Greenways will be diving into its tactical action plan. Plus, there’ll be a strategy session on two “Safe Routes to School” projects that focus on two dangerous Queen Anne intersections – 7th Ave W and W McGraw St, where a 4-way stop is proposed (and needed), and the 7-way stop on East Queen Anne, a primary (very busy) route onto and off-of Queen Anne from Aurora. With the former near Coe Elementary and the latter near Seattle Country Day School, making these intersections safe is a priority for the group.
You can see the intersections in question, and the issues they pose in the Queen Anne Greenways photos below:
