Overview and History
In 2016 City Council approved the rechannelization as part of the 2017-2022 CIP. The project changed the striping on Richmond Beach Road between 24th Ave NW and Dayton Ave N. The road originally had 2 lanes in each direction. It now has 1 lane in each direction, a center turn lane, and bike lanes.
The project was done to address safety issues. Richmond Beach Road has a history of collisions, including two high collision locations from the City’s 2016 Annual Traffic Report:
- 3rd Ave NW and NW Richmond Beach Road intersection
- NW Richmond Beach Road between 3rd Ave NW and 8th Ave NW
High collision locations have higher rates of injury collisions than other roads or intersections in Shoreline.
There was an open house at the beginning of design to share information, receive feedback on different options, and address peoples’ questions and concerns about the project. You can view the meeting materials below:
