SR 522/NE 145th Community Workshops Summary now available
Thank you to everyone who participated in the most recent round of outreach for the SR 522/NE 145th Bus Rapid Transit Project. We appreciated getting to meet with so many of you and are now working to review your feedback to help us determine which project refinements to move forward into the next phase of the project. Here are some quick numbers that summarize this round of outreach:
- Approximately 175 people attended the eight in-person public events held in Bothell, Lake Forest Park, Kenmore, and Shoreline
- Over 880 unique participants visited the online open house
- 244 online surveys, 34 comment forms, and 126 comments on flip charts and sticky notes were submitted, in addition to feedback received during in-person events on project maps and through conversations with staff
Visit our project website to view a full summary of our September/October 2018 outreach process and the comments we received.
We're using your feedback to help further clarify the potential project refinements, including parking locations, sidewalk locations, lane configurations, and more. Early in 2019, we'll hold another series of public meetings in Kenmore and Shoreline to hear your thoughts on these additional project details. Check your inbox for more information on dates, timing, and venues later this winter.
