Large, lighted signs have been installed at the intersection of 160th and Aurora. Along 160th, the smaller street signs on each corner now have ‘College Way” installed above the 160th street sign.

Dr. Cheryl Roberts, President of Shoreline Community College, stated “I am delighted to see the signs go up in honor of our college. 
"We are truly ‘of’ the community not just ‘in’ the community. This has been over a year and a half in the making. I am thrilled Shoreline is recognized as a college town and that 160th street is now distinguished as ‘College Way’. 
"The signs will greatly improve wayfinding for all who want to visit our beautiful campus and experience the outstanding teaching and learning that happens for our students and the communities we serve. This is perfect timing prior to the Seattle International Film festival coming in late May”.

Dr. Roberts also thanked the City of Shoreline for their continued support and collaboration. “We look forward to continuing the good work with the City of Shoreline on making improvements and enhancements to the areas surrounding our campus”.

I live on Dayton and 160th. I can honestly say I did not even notice the new signage, or even hear about this before now!

Shoreline, please check the signal operation of the left turn from 160th to northbound SR 99. It phases from green arrow, very briefly to yellow arrow, red for a couple seconds, then back to flashing yellow. Similar intersections simply change from green to flashing yellow. A lot of drivers simply drive through the short red phase.
