Speed reduction to 30mph now in effect for six roadways in Shoreline

Saturday, June 4, 2022

Effective June 1, 2022, the speed limit on six Shoreline roadways has been reduced from 35mph to 30mph. New signs are up.

The Shoreline City Council adopted the ordinance at their December 6, 2021 meeting.

The roadways are:
  1. N/NE 175th Street from Aurora Avenue N to 15th Avenue NE
  2. Meridian Avenue N from N 145th Street to NE 205th Street (the entire length in Shoreline)
  3. 15th Avenue NE from NE 145th Street to NE 175th Street
  4. 15th Avenue NE from NE 180th Street to NE 196th Street
  5. Greenwood Avenue N from N 145th Street to NW Innis Arden Way
  6. N/NW Richmond Beach Road from 8th Avenue NW to Fremont Avenue N

Just curious. Why the change

And can we expect any enforcement? 40 mph and running the red light at 10th NE is quite common - the only time I see police there is after an accident. Once light rail at NE 185th opens it will be a major intersection - maybe we could start traffic calming there and all along 5th, 8th and 10th NE before it gets further out of hand?

I am glad to see the reduction. It was confusing to transition from 35 to 30 in what seemed identical conditions. Meridian in particular seemed far too narrow a street for 35mph considering the number of children on the street.

We need occasional enforcement, the streets will be a better place to walk. Walking 15th on the narrow sidewalk, with cars rushing by at 40 is a bit terrifying.
