Aurora Ave N and N 83rd St Mobility Improvements

March 30, 2020

What's happening now?

As soon as March 30, construction will begin for the crossing improvements at Aurora Ave N and N 83rd St. These improvements include: a pedestrian traffic signal, realigning the intersection, building extended curbs, and a new crosswalk along the north side of the intersection. This completed work will improve safety for everyone using the intersection of Aurora Ave N, Green Lake Dr N, and N 83rd St.

What to expect during construction

  • Work lasting approximately two weeks
  • Work hours between 7AM and 3:30PM, Monday through Friday
  • Typical construction noise, dust, and vibrations
  • Temporary parking restrictions
  • Temporary pedestrian and bike detours
  • Access to business and homes will be maintained at all times

Project Overview

The new crossing improvements to expect once the project is complete are:

  • Pedestrian traffic signal
  • Realigning the intersection
  • Adding extended curb bulbs
  • Adding a new crosswalk on the north side of the 83rd and Aurora intersection

Traffic revisions include: The slip lane for right turns onto Aurora from 83rd will be removed, and vehicles will exit to Green Lake Dr N. N 83rd St between Aurora and Stone will remain a two-way street but drivers heading northwest on Green Lake will not be able to turn right onto 83rd.


  • A safer crossing intersection for Bagley Elementary students and families
  • Connects Green Lake Dr N to the North Seattle neighborhood greenway on 83rd St
  • Safer and more predictable crossings for everyone
