Watch for pedestrians and drive safely

If you drive on N 175th Street often, you will notice a new pedestrian crosswalk at 175th and Wallingford, which connects pedestrians to the west side of Meridian Park Elementary.

It is actually an old crosswalk that the City is reactivating with new rapid flashing yellow beacons that are activated by a pedestrian pushbutton.

When you see the lights flashing use caution and stop for pedestrians waiting to cross.

The City removed the crosswalk several years ago for safety reasons. However, even with the removal of the crosswalk and the placing of a “No Crossing” sign at the location, pedestrians continued to cross 175th at this location, many of whom are students at Meridian Park Elementary. 

The City and the Shoreline School District determined that it was best to reinstall the crosswalk with the flashing yellow beacons as an interim step until more comprehensive improvements can be designed and constructed.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact City Traffic Engineer Kendra Dedinsky at 206-801-2431.
