The Safe Highways Project
What is Safe Highways?
The City of Lake Forest Park is looking at the two state highways within city limits—Bothell Way NE (SR 522) and Ballinger Way NE (SR 104)—and exploring ways to make them safer, more accommodating to transit, and more walkable and bikeable. Through this process, we hope to accomplish three goals:
There is a concurrent project called “Safe Streets” that was initiated by City staff in Fall 2016. The Safe Streets project is separate and is focused on the other surface streets in Lake Forest Park. Read more about Safe Streets at www.lfpsafestreets.com.
The Safe Highways project was initiated by City staff in the Spring of 2017. The City presented findings and highway improvement project options for SR 104 and SR 522 at three public Open Houses this fall—materials from these events can be found on the Project Files page. It is anticipated that the draft recommendation will be available in February 2018.
