28th NE and NE 125th - a dangerous
intersection in Lake City

Even before Maria Banda was fatally injured by a hit-and-run driver while crossing Northeast 125th Street with her husband, residents in Seattle’s Lake City neighborhood had been asking for pedestrian improvements along the busy arterial.
Now, as they mourn the loss of a community member — at least the second traffic-related death in the area in six months — the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) says it’s “fast-tracking” the neighborhood’s repeated requests for action.

The #41 bus stops at 28th NE which is the location of the Lake City Library, the Farmers Market, and the Community Center.

There is no crosswalk on NE 125th, a major east-west connector to Lake City Way (Bothell Way farther north).

There may not be a crosswalk over NE 125th at 28th, but there are two at 27th and 30th. There is no shortage of crosswalks on the heavily road dieted NE 125th.

Neighborhood interest groups never want enough. Instead of kowtowing to their demands, perhaps efforts should be concentrated on finding the driver who committed vehicular homicide.
