Petition SDOT for a crosswalk at Belmont Ave E & Bellevue Place E

This petition made change with 603 supporters!


Mr. Eaves and the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT):

This past week we were saddened to learn of the death of Max Richards, a beloved member of our community, who was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street with his dog at Belmont Avenue East and Bellevue Place East, a busy intersection at the heart of our north Capitol Hill neighborhood. 

We, the undersigned, are residents and business owners of the community near this intersection.

We believe:
-that this intersection (Belmont Ave E & Bellevue Pl E) is unsafe for pedestrians because there is no marked crosswalk
-that vehicles have poor visibility of persons on foot or bicycle
-that vehicles often drive at speeds in excess of the posted 25 MPH limit
-that because of the steep grade, crossing at an alternate location is difficult for those with limited mobility
-and that, despite implied crossing rights at this intersection, vehicles regularly fail to yield to those waiting to cross

We petition the SDOT to:
-urgently reevaluate the need for safe pedestrian crossing at this intersection (Belmont Ave E & Bellevue Pl E)
-install striped pedestrian crosswalks at this intersection
-consider the addition of In-Roadway Warning Lights (IRWL) at this intersection
-consider the addition of pedestrian crossing signs at this intersection

Please help us to make this a safer part of our neighborhood.
