Capitol Hill residents, businesses, and regional safe streets advocates have worked for years to reimagine what an updated Melrose Ave could mean to the community. Their vision has focused on a “vibrant and visually stunning promenade.”
We want to talk with you about the project and learn what you think. Please attend our open house on Tuesday, April 3, 5:30-7 PM, at Melrose Market Studios (1532 Minor Ave).
Project map and info are below:
Right now, people are getting in crashes regularly, streets can be difficult to cross, people driving use Melrose Ave as a cut-through to I-5, and sidewalks can be missing or narrow.
Ideas for a safer, more inviting street have included:
- traffic calming
- sidewalk upgrades
- street crossings
- public space
- lane redesign
- wayfinding signs
- bike facilities
- pavement repair
