Northgate Pedestrian Bridge Drop-In Sessions This Month

The Seattle Department of Transportation has announced three “drop-in sessions” this month to show off the latest design of the proposed Northgate pedestrian bridge over I-5 that will hook up with the Link Light Rail station there.  Working with their partners at North Seattle College, they recently refined the west approach to the Northgate Ped/Bike Bridge. Stop by a session to learn about:

  • Bridge design updates

Northgate Pedestrian Bridge Briefing Tuesday

This month’s meeting of the Victory Heights Community Council on Tuesday, May 17th will feature a presentation by Art Brochet from Seattle’s Department of Transportation about the Northgate pedestrian bridge project. This new bridge over Interstate 5 from the coming Northgate Link Light Rail station across to North Seattle College has been in the planning stage for several years, but funding was in question. However, with the passage of the Move Seattle Levy last year, it is fully funded now and in the design phase for construction to begin in 2018. Come see proposals for bridge design and location and learn more.  The meeting begins at 7 PM at the co-op preschool building in Victory Heights Park. The chairs are designed for small children, so bring your own for best comfort. We hope to see you there!
