Safer Streets for Pedestrians & Bicyclists
The Safe Streets Project
The City of Lake Forest Park is hoping to make its streets safer for pedestrians and cyclists and to increase safe connections to transit and amenities like the Burke-Gilman Trail, Interurban Trail, parks, and schools, so the City is leading a public outreach process to identify community priorities. Through this process, we hope to accomplish four goals:
The project team has prepared a draft Safe Streets report for the City Council’s review on June 8. The report and its appendices are available on the Project Files page.
The report identifies ten projects as candidates for future funding to improve the safety of Lake Forest Park streets for all users. To arrive at this list of projects, the consultant team evaluated project ideas that stemmed from the public outreach process. Factors considered during the evaluation included feasibility, cost, professional judgement, and effectiveness at improving the pedestrian environment, bicycle environment, and access to transit among others. The report also identifies lesser-known funding sources available to cities for transportation purposes.
