As of March 2020
NOTICE OF POSTPONED EVENTS: To participate in the fight to slow the spread of COVID-19 the City has postponed the public involvement process for the project. The following events are postponed until further notice:
- April 9: Property owner and tenant drop-in session
- April 28: In-person open house
- April 27 to May 13: Online Open House
Despite the project adjustments due to COVID-19, we are committed to working with you throughout the design process. The City will provide opportunities for you to learn about and share your thoughts on the design concepts.
We look forward to talking to people who live along the corridor, local businesses, community organizations, and people who travel along 175th Street to see what changes need to be made. Check back here for event updates and project information, or sign up for email alerts using the eNotification Signup section in the right-hand column of this page to stay up to date.
We will keep you informed throughout the design process and will let you know how your comments influenced the design. If we don’t use your suggestions, we will let you know why. This is your community and we want to be sure that the corridor design reflects your vision and needs, while meeting the technical needs of the project. We will collect input on design concepts from you before developing a preferred design concept.
Phase 1 Community Engagement
During Phase 1 last spring, we talked with property owners, local businesses, community organizations, and people who travel on 175th Street about the 175th Street Corridor Improvements Project. We heard that developing a sidewalk network and improving traveler safety are top priorities for the community. Our team also looked at traffic, safety, and existing facilities on 175th Street. We explored potential changes to the corridor that may include ways to reduce traffic and build sidewalks and bike lanes. We also presented information about existing conditions along the corridor and shared the City’s goals, objectives, and priorities for the project. Thank you to everyone who engaged with us and shared their experiences and ideas about the project!
We invited the public to an open house on May 21, 2019 at Shoreline City Hall. The goals were for people to learn about the project and share their experiences and ideas. Participants gave feedback on the City’s goals, objectives, and design priorities for the corridor. The project team provided a brief presentation then opened the floor for questions and feedback.
An online open house was available between May 21 and June 14. We would like to thank all those who participated, whether in person or online, for contributing your ideas and experiences on the corridor.
Materials from the open house and additional project information are linked below.
Since then, we have used your feedback to develop draft design concepts that address what is most important to you.
Throughout the design process, we will be in touch with the community to gather feedback at key points.
The City is postponing Phase 2 outreach due to impacts from COVID-19. We will be in touch about an updated timeline.
Overview and History
The 175th Street corridor is one of Shoreline’s most active east-west arterials connecting the city’s busiest north-south roadways: State Route 99/Aurora Avenue N, I-5 and 15th Avenue NE. Shoreline has made it a priority to improve 175th Street between Stone Avenue and I-5 by making it easier and safer for all corridor users. These improvements may include measures to reduce traffic congestion, complete the sidewalk network, build on-corridor or parallel bicycle facilities, and develop an overall design that supports the anticipated growth in communities adjacent to 175th Street.
We have been working diligently to identify transportation needs to meet the demands of our growing community. Before we were thinking about project design for the 175th Street corridor, our City engineers were studying traffic patterns, reviewing safety requirements, and looking at how to make our traffic corridors more accessible for all modes of travel. Input you have provided at City Council meetings and meetings for other projects in the area have helped inform the City’s priorities and contributed to identifying 175th Street as a priority project.The 175th Street corridor project area spans the length of North 175th Street between Stone Avenue North and I-5.
City Council will consider staff recommendations and the public’s input to adopt a preferred design for the 175th Street corridor by late 2020.
