We’re excited to let you know that the John and Thomas Corridor Crossing Improvements project, located on Capitol Hill, was among 12 projects selected in late 2016 by the Levy to Move Seattle Oversight Committee for funding through the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) Neighborhood Street Fund (NSF) program. The NSF program funds projects requested by the community.
The 2015 voter-approved Levy to Move Seattle includes $24 million to continue the NSF program over a nine-year period. Learn more about the program: www.seattle.gov/transportation/nsf.htm
John and Thomas Corridor Crossing Improvements
This project will improve the safety and visibility of people walking and biking at intersections without traffic signals along the John Street and Thomas Street corridor.
We will install new curb and bus bulbs, new and improved ADA-accessible curb ramps, and pedestrian crossing beacons. We are working in conjunction with King Country Metro Transit to adjust the location of two bus stops before we construct the new bulbs.

This is the first phase of outreach and we’d like to hear from you! Email us by April 20 to let us know:
- What do you like about the design concept shown on our website? Do you have any concerns?
- What else do you want the design team to know about these locations?
This project is being designed in 2017, with construction scheduled for 2018. We’re committed to keeping you informed throughout the life of the project. We’ll keep you engaged as design progresses and stay in touch throughout the year.
