ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

On Friday, May 26, the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will lower the speed limit on on Harbor Ave SW in West Seattle (and Boyer Ave E in the Montlake neighborhood) as part of the city’s Vision Zero plan to end traffic deaths and serious injuries on city streets by 2030. Lower speeds improve safety for everyone, especially people walking and biking.

On Harbor Ave SW, the speed limit will drop from 35 to 30 MPH. On Boyer Ave E, SDOT will reduce the speed limit from 30 to 25 MPH to complement physical design changes put in place last year.

“At the end of the day people expect to get home safely to their families, and as a transportation agency, that’s at the heart of what we do,” said SDOT Director Scott Kubly. “We know that lower speed limits are a key way to improve safety for everyone.”

In West Seattle, Harbor Ave SW provides access to residences, businesses, Alki Beach, and parks. Harbor Ave and nearby Alki Trail draw people walking and biking year-round, especially during the warmer months, so a lower speed limit in this neighborhood will help create a more comfortable environment for all travelers.
