U District Mobility Plan

Shaping the future of the U District
Multi-modal streets in the U District

U District Station Area Mobility Plan

To ensure safe and reliable access to U District Station for all, we needed a coordinated plan that considers how people will safely and comfortably get to the station. To derive a community driven plan that addresses the needs of all those who walk, bike, ride the bus or drive, our project has engaged the U District community in a planning effort to create a holistic, community-driven station area vision with actionable recommendations that address access, safety and livability around the future light rail station.

Our desired outcome is a holistic, multi-modal station area mobility plan for the U District.

We conducted a series of interactive community meetings, online surveys, and other means of outreach during the first part of 2018 to collect community feedback, identify barriers and opportunities, and brainstorm on potential solutions along with representatives from the city and transit agencies. The product of the outreach process is a vision plan released this September to guide transportation improvement around U District Station.
