Several blocks of Delridge Way SW in West Seattle are so overgrown with blackberries and weeds that they are impassable by pedestrians. Who owns the property? The City of Seattle Department of Transportation. I put in a call requesting a cleanup, but no action was taken. So I'm taking things to the next level.

The City of Seattle conducted blocking the box enforcement on Mercer Street at Dexter Avenue N in coordination with transit lane enforcement at other locations in downtown. Seattle Police Officers enforced the posted blocking the box restrictions which help address vehicles that illegally stop in the intersection impeding traffic and pedestrian safety. More of these enforcements are planned for the weeks ahead, and will occur throughout the city. On February 12th, 2015, Mayor Murray announced Vision Zero – Seattle’s plan to eliminate traffic fatalities and serious injuries by 2030. The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) and the Seattle Police Department (SPD) have partnered to achieve our safety goals by following the basic principles of this approach which include: -Roadway design that takes human error into account and creates a safer, more predictable environment for all travelers -Targeted education and public engagement that empowers people to make better decisions -Data-driven enforcement that targets high crash areas and key behaviors Thank you to drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians for practicing safe travel habits, and to the Seattle Police Traffic Officers for the work they do to keep us all safe.

Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) hosted a “First Hill Streetcar Safety Day” last week at the Occidental & Jackson, Broadway & Denny, and 14th & Washington stations. Please view in HD setting for the highest resolution quality. The Safety Day featured Metro streetcar operators onboard stationary streetcars at the three station locations. The public was invited to board and check out the new streetcars and ask questions about how they operate and learn streetcar safety tips. SDOT Rail Transit Manager Ethan Melone gives Streetcar 101 here on our latest Blog Video. The First Hill Streetcar will operate from 5 a.m. to 1 a.m. Monday through Saturday, with 10 minute headways during peak commute periods, and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. It will help connect and serve major hospitals (Swedish Medical Center and Harborview Medical Center), higher education institutions (Seattle Central College and Seattle University), and sporting event venues (CenturyLink & Safeco Field). If you couldn’t make it to Safety Day, here are few things you need to know: Streetcars are quiet. They may sound warning bells and horns when necessary. There are no fences or barriers separating streetcars from other cars, bikes or pedestrians. Drivers should be prepared to stop behind streetcars. Streetcars cannot swerve to avoid obstacles as they run on tracks. Streetcars sometimes have their own traffic signals and can cross the street when other vehicles cannot. Cyclists should cross streetcar tracks at a right angle to avoid falling. The First Hill Streetcar line was built by the City of Seattle in partnership with Sound Transit, with funding provided by the 2008 voter approved Sound Transit expansion plan. The streetcar system is an important part of Seattle’s transportation network, and will help to improve mobility and reduce traffic congestion in the city. Find out more about the Seattle Streetcar at http://www.seattlestreetcar.org/ and sign up to receive streetcar news and updates. SDOT will announce a start date for service once final phase testing is completed.

Red and Green Pavement Markings, What do they all mean? Dongho Chang, SDOT City Traffic Engineer explains Bicycle and Transit markings that help Bike and Transit riders, and drivers and pedestrians navigate the city. It's a part of our efforts to keep everyone safe as they travel in and around the city. Red lanes identify Transit Bus only and at certain locations those restrictions are tied to commute hours, others are 24/7 transit only. Green Bike Boxes are green spaces that creates a space before the intersection so that people on bikes can cross the intersections ahead of traffic. This makes bikes more visible and predictable to approaching drivers. Green Two-stage Left Turn Box offers bicyclists a safer left turn at multi-lane signalized intersections and helps create predictability for drivers and riders. Seattle is consistently recognized as one of the safest cities in the country, but there's more to do to reach Vision Zero, our plan to end traffic fatalities and serious injuries by 2030. We are continuing to improve our transportation network to make it safer for everyone. SDOT would like to thank everyone for continuing to look out for each other, whether you're walking, biking, or driving, so we can all get to where we're going safely.

In 2012, Vancouver's city council set an ambitious goal to reach a bike mode split of 7% by 2020 which was achieved in 2015, 5 years ahead of the plan! And even more impressive: if you just look at just work commute mode splits, they've achieved 10% which certainly puts them in a rare category in North America. When you ride around the fantastic network of bike lanes throughout the city, it is no wonder Vancouver, BC is experiencing a leap in ridership. Most of the city feels safe to ride in and it's fun to see all sorts of people out on bikes. And the fact that they are constantly going back to re-engineer and tweak some parts of the lanes to make them even safer is a key plot point that we need to engage all cities to do more of. Here's just one fact from Dale Bracewell from the City of Vancouver who's our main storyteller: when the city had just painted bike lanes on Hornby Street, the share of women cycling was 28%. After the landscaped protected bike lanes was constructed and years of growth, the share of women cycling by 2015 has grown by 40% (now 39% of the total people cycling). So sit back and watch and listen to other advocates across the nation who were in Vancouver for the 2016 Pro Walk Pro Bike Pro Place conference who also offer their observations and experience riding the wonderful network of biking nirvana (well for those of us in cities that aren't near this quality just yet.) I'll end by reflecting on New York City, where we have had tremendous growth and very good work by our NYC DOT in the past 8 years. However, you can see here the extra mile Vancouver is putting in. When you ride in the downtown it's uncommon you'll see a bike lane with a vehicle conflict - without some sort of safety feature or paint. And I didn't see one car parked in the protected lanes in 3 days of riding. In New York, we need to take the additional steps of shoring up our bike infra. After all, we already have the real estate in many cases, we just need to make our protected lanes more bold!

Janette Sadik-Khan was the Commissioner of the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) from 2007-2013. Janette Sadik-Khan famously converted a segment of Broadway into a pedestrian plaza, but this was part of a larger framework of wherein the DOT would paint, measure, then finalize street re-designs. The pedestrian plazas built by the DOT tended to be where streets intersected at non-right angles, as with Broadway, or where the space was under-utilized for parking, as in the early Pearl Street Plaza project. Under her predecessor, Iris Weinshall, traffic designs were finalized on paper and then built based on the AASHTO Highway Designs that have long been criticized as being tailored for rural and suburban needs.

The detours began Sunday night May 5 at the East End of the Senator George Sellar Bridge for construction of a concrete intersection at Grant Rd. and SR 28. That bridge over the Columbia River connects Wenatchee and East Wenatchee and carries more than 50,000 vehicles a day. As the final construction season for the $65 million of bridge improvements got underway, the most significant traffic impact since work started three years ago began. Work to replace the softer asphalt intersection at Grant Road and SR 28 with much more durable concrete required detours until May 23, (ending a day earlier than scheduled, despite a week of crummy, wet and cold weather!) There was a traffic plan for each of the three weeks during the construction: Stage 1 reconstructed the western half of the Intersection. Stage 2 reconstructed the eastern half. Stage 3 reconstructed the east leg of Grant Road at the Valley Mall Parkway/Rock Island Road Intersection. There are actually three separate projects to improve access to and travel across the Senator George Sellar Bridge. The first one which started in May of 2009 added a fifth lane to the bridge and a new bicycle and pedestrian cantilever on the south side of the structure. It was complete in 2011. The second project which will be complete this summer, built a bypass of the Grant Road/SR 28 intersection along the west side of Fred Meyer's. The third project rebuilds the access routes on the Wenatchee end of the bridge including more lanes and a new exit ramp to Ferry Street. That project will be complete this fall.

A Google TechTalk, 11/14/17, presented by Anat Caspi ABSTRACT: Sidewalks form the fabric of urban life, connecting nearly every kind of travel and mode of transportation. As individual travelers, we present varied information requirements about the pedestrian environment consisting of static and transient attributes of the sidewalks ranging from elevation changes to curb ramps to transient surface conditions. Surprisingly, such data, and even the location of sidewalks, are generally unavailable in a user-consumable format. Equitable pedestrian wayfinding is crucial for a barrier-free city, where people with different abilities can independently access customized, relevant, and up-to-date routing information along pedestrian paths. However, existing routing solutions are rarely aware of sidewalks as data entities and primarily optimize for distance, offering inappropriate routes, for instance, with steep inclines that are unusable by many manual wheelchair users. A data model for equitable pedestrian wayfinding must flexibly support an annotated pedestrian network: a connected graph model that represents sidewalk segments and the way they connect and that can be visualized and populated with data to parameterize a personal cost function. With adequate data, we are able to model navigation behavior and wayfinding among people with disabilities, and build generalized models for non-motorized behavior in pedestrian travel networks. To address these challenges, the Taskar Center for Accessible Technology at the Paul G. Allen School engages with and co-designs solutions with accessibility advocacy groups, data scientists, and academics. Anat Caspi will present a set of tools and applications we have developed under the OpenSidewalks and AccessMap projects that enable custom pedestrian routing and improved infrastructure investment in urban planning. About the speaker: Dr. Anat Caspi is Director of the Taskar Center for Accessible Technology (TCAT) whose mission is to develop, translate, and deploy technology that improves quality of life for individuals with diverse mobility and speech abilities. The TCAT projects presented here focus on improving mobility options and access to commuting options for individuals of all abilities. Caspi directs accessible technology projects at the Paul G. Allen School along with collaborations with other departments at the University of Washington. Caspi’s research interests are in the areas of ubiquitous sensing and computing, and applications of machine learning in Data Science for Social Good. Caspi is particularly interested in ways in which collaborative commons and community cooperation can challenge and transform the current economics of assistive technology and incentivize rapid development and deployment of equitably- and inclusively designed technology. Caspi is currently helping to evolve and scale the inclusive design curriculum at the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering. Caspi received a B.S. with Honors and M.S. in Computer Science from Stanford University; she received a Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the joint graduate group in BioE at the University of California at Berkeley and San Francisco. Caspi is the 2017 recipient of Northwest Access Fund Innovation Award, recognizing her contribution and development of products that have improved the quality of life for individuals with a disability in the Pacific Northwest region.

The most dangerous bridge in every US state | United States Infrastructure | tourist destination On June 7, President Trump rallied in Ohio for his $1 trillion infrastructure plan, a key campaign promise that's now part of his domestic agenda. One of the plan's goals is to fix America's bridges, which received a C+ grade in the American Society of Civil Engineers' 2017 Infrastructure Report Card. (Overall, US infrastructure scored a D+, and the ASCE estimates the country needs to spend $4.5 trillion by 2025 to improve its roads, bridges, dams, airports, schools, and more.) Every state has at least one structurally deficient bridge, which the US Department of Transportation (DOT) defines as when one or more key bridge components (e.g. the deck, superstructure, or substructure) is in "poor" condition. There are 185 million daily crossings on nearly 56,000 structurally deficient US bridges, according to the American Road and Transportation Builders Association. Using 2017 data from theUS Federal Highway Administration, Auto Insurance Center found the most structurally deficient bridge - based on the highest number of components in poor or worse condition - in each state and Washington, DC.

Ken Johnsen to Discuss the Transformation of Seattle's Waterfront Feb. 28, 2013 at Western Washington University Contact: Western Washington University's Huxley College of the Environment at (360) 650-3520. http://www.wwu.edu/huxley/ BELLINGHAM -- Ken Johnsen will present "Transforming Seattle's Central Waterfront" as part of Western Washington University's Huxley College of the Environment Speaker Series at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 28 in Academic West 204 on Western's campus. The presentation is free and open to the public. Johnsen graduated from Western with a bachelor's degree in Urban and Regional Planning, and is a principal at Shiels Obletz Johnsen. He is the consultant project manager for the Waterfront Seattle program. Johnsen will present a Waterfront Seattle program overview including design, planning and community involvement challenges and opportunities. Waterfront Seattle is a partnership between the City of Seattle and the community to create a dynamic public waterfront in downtown Seattle. Building on 10 years of public planning, this large-scale design process includes a range of improvements extending 26 city blocks from Pioneer Square to the Olympic Sculpture Park. The transformation of the central waterfront is because of the need to replace the failing Alaskan Way Viaduct roadway and Elliott Bay Seawall. The future waterfront is envisioned as a vibrant public and cultural space reconnecting Seattle's downtown to the waterfront, including parks, paths, gathering spaces and a new urban street to accommodate all modes of travel. In July 2012, Waterfront Seattle shared its concept plan and strategic plan, which were the culmination of years of design work, civic leadership and community engagement. In August 2012, the Seattle City Council unanimously approved Waterfront Seattle's concept design and the proposed $1.1 billion funding strategy. The project team will continue to advance the design and begin environmental review in 2013. More information and images of the proposed design are available at www.waterfrontseattle.org. Anyone interested in these topics is encouraged to come and participate; the presentation will include a question-and-answer period. The speaker series is held by Western's Huxley College of the Environment to bring together the environmentally minded community and other interested members of Western and Bellingham's communities. Speakers address topics of contemporary environmental concern in the region and the world. For more information, please contact the main office of Huxley College of the Environment, at (360) 650-3520.Western's Huxley College of the Environment is one of the oldest environmental colleges in the nation and a recognized national leader in producing the next generation of environmental stewards. The College's academic programs reflect a broad view of the physical, biological, social and cultural world. This innovative and interdisciplinary approach makes Huxley unique.

An architect, planner and artist, Newman has lived and worked in New York City for 30 years. Committed to bringing inventive design to all aspects of our urban life, she explores what it means to live and work in one of the most vibrant cities in the world. Newman has provided leadership to revitalize New York City's public realm with an emphasis on design excellence, prioritized comprehensive planning, the introduction of emerging technologies, and inter-agency collaboration. The NYC Department of Transportation is the driving force behind many of the city's recent initiatives and Newman has a hand in virtually all of them. Developing and implementing a sustainability agenda alongside Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan, Newman is transforming Times Square into a pedestrian paradise, ushering in the era of efficient and high-performing LED streetlights, and setting consistent design standards for New York's streets through the Street Design Manual. These innovations are hallmarks of the Bloomberg Administration that will benefit New York, its inhabitants, and visitors, and provide economic vitality by creating a stronger, more sustainable and resilient city. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
