Talk transfer station traffic troubles

May 12th, 2010 by master

Our sister site, My Wallingford, reported this today:

If you live or work near the North Recycling and Disposal Station (NRDS) and have concerns about traffic in the area, show up at a community meeting tomorrow night to let Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) hear your experiences.

Bill Benzer, who’s project manager for the SRDS rebuild slated to start in 2012, told us that he has been hearing from stakeholders in the community about current traffic issues and wanted to get neighbors and SDOT together to share information.

Residents around the North Recycling and Disposal Station have complained of drivers using residential streets instead of arterials and speeding.

Here are details about the meeting, which will take place Thursday, May 13, at 6:30 PM at the Hamilton Middle School Library, located at 4400 Interlake Ave N (former Lincoln High School):

At this meeting, you will have an opportunity to:

  • Share your questions or concerns related to NRDS traffic on Interlake, Ashworth, Carr Place, and Woodlawn Avenues North with representatives from Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) and the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT).
  • Learn more about the city’s neighborhood traffic calming program and first steps for identifying problems, common strategies the City uses to deal with different traffic issues on neighborhood streets, what is required to implement these solutions, and what you can do.

For more information about this project or the community meeting:

  • You can call or e-mail Bill Benzer, the NRDS project manager, at (206) 684-7845 or
  • You can learn more about traffic calming at SDOT’s website
  • You can learn more about what is proposed for the North Recycling and Disposal Station at the NRDS project website
Even if you don’t live near the transfer station, this is a good opportunity to learn about the traffic-calming measures available to the neighborhood.
