If you moved to the north end of Seattle after the summer of 2011, you may have no idea that there was an epic debate over city plans for a road safety project on NE 125th Street. That’s because the … Continue reading
The lucky among you do not remember the vicious fight over a 2011 road diet on NE 125th Street, which pitted neighbors against neighbors in a drawn-out and ugly battle over ten feet of road space in North Seattle. Prompted … Continue reading
So, in case you haven’t been paying attention, the Seattle Weekly is a little upset with the mayor. Ever since Mayor McGinn put his sights on the Weekly and the Village Voice’s backpage.com for doing a piss-poor job of preventing … Continue reading
One more street in Seattle is safer thanks to the city’s complete streets remake of NE 125th Street in Lake City. What used to be a dangerous, four-lane highway-style road dividing the neighborhood has been redesigned to meet the needs … Continue reading
This story is part of a series about Seattle’s young neighborhood greenway movement. In part three, we look into hopes that greenway projects will be less controversial than arterial bike lanes and how that could impact the city’s bicycle infrastructure … Continue reading
In a lengthy email summarizing the public comments he received and the reasoning behind his decision, Mayor Mike McGinn announced that he has accepted SDOT’s approval for a road diet on NE 125th St. The project, which we have written … Continue reading

We reported last week that, after a delayed start, opposition to changes to NE 125th St has started back up. There was a petition drive, and signs placed on the road urge drivers to call the mayor’s office to voice … Continue reading
It has been a week since SDOT recommended changes to NE 125th, and there seemed to be little to no action from opponents. However, a smooth end to an unnecessarily rocky road project debate may not actually be in Mayor … Continue reading
Pending approval by Mayor McGinn, SDOT is moving forward with plans to redesign NE 125th St to include a center left turn lane, bike lanes and improved pedestrian crossings. The proposed changes between Roosevelt and 28th Ave NE met with … Continue reading
North Seattle biking folx, Tom Rasmussen is holding a public meeting about transportation Saturday at the Broadview Library, 12755 Greenwood Ave. N. All topics are on the table, though it would perhaps be a good opportunity to discuss complete streets … Continue reading
You’ll have to forgive me for my late digest of last week’s Lake City town hall with the mayor. There are some good moments, though you will have to get used to the poor audio and choppy video.
Let’s make this clear, yet again. NE 125th carries a little over 16,000 cars per day. SDOT’s experience and research clearly shows that the proposed three-lane configuration can carry up to 25,000 vehicles per day. They have done similar projects … Continue reading
KUOW Weekday took on road diets this morning (listen here). Eric Widstrand from SDOT was on to defend the road diet projects, focusing mostly on Nickerson, from the fears of residents and so-called business representatives. The same old arguments came … Continue reading
Well, I am glad to see that, in her newest column, Nicole Brodeur has taken back many of the unfounded and unresearched claims she made in her previous column. First, she apologizes for attacking the mayor when the project was … Continue reading

Nicole Brodeur at the Times agrees with the proposed changes to NE 125th, she just doesn’t realize it. She also doesn’t do her homework. First, she spends several paragraphs in her Monday column suggesting that the plans are just “Mayor … Continue reading
An article in the Seattle Times Saturday has struck up the same old anti-traffic calming arguments, framing the project as a bikes vs car project. In the piece, residents express fears of doom and congestion, despite ample evidence from the … Continue reading
