Overview and History

The City’s 2018 Traffic Report indicated that 39 percent of the 46 injury and fatal collisions in Shoreline between 2010 and 2016 involved a pedestrian, and that, as a percentage of overall injury collisions the number of non-motorized (pedestrian and bicycle) collisions is rising. In mid-2018, staff sought grant funding for improvements on a number of the identified segments, focusing on reducing the numbers of pedestrian and bicycle injury collisions.
