The City of Edmonds is pleased to announce the award of a Federally funded grant aimed at increasing pedestrian safety in various locations around the City.

The Citywide Pedestrian Crossing Enhancements project will upgrade facilities to increase pedestrian safety at nine critical intersections around the City.

Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFBs) will be installed at 7 intersections. RRFBs are already in use in Edmonds at the 5 Corners Roundabout and in the 500 Block of Main St. This project will install RRFBs at the following locations:

Caspers @ 7th Ave N
Dayton St @ Salish Crossing driveway
Dayton St @ 2nd Ave S
Main St @ Olympic Ave
76th Ave @ 206th St SW
Walnut @ 8th Ave Pedestrian Path
106th Ave W @ 229th St SW

A High Intensity Activated Crosswalk Beacon (HAWK) will be installed in the vicinity of the intersection of 196th St SW and 84th Ave W.  A HAWK is already in use in Edmonds on SR-104 close to City Park.

In addition to these improvements, pedestrian buttons and crosswalk markings will be added to the existing emergency signal at the intersection of SR-104 and 232nd St SW.

Sidewalk and ramps at each of these locations will be upgraded to meet current ADA standards. 

Design of these improvements is expected to begin Summer, 2017 with construction anticipated to occur during the second half of 2019.
