Title: Mercer Corridor East: A Great Street Connecting Neighborhoods and the Region

Project: Mercer Corridor East

Firm: HBB Landscape Architecture

Summary: As a primary entry into Seattle and a vital east-west link between I-5 and SR-99, Mercer Corridor East redesigns the streetscape to alleviate conflicts between transit, vehicles, freight, bicycles, and pedestrians. Focusing on Mercer Street, Valley Street, and Westlake Ave. N., the circulation improvements enhance connections to I-5 and integrate the Seattle Streetcar, Metro Transit, Port of Seattle freight routes, bicycle routes, and pedestrians. As a major gateway, the design seeks to provide an iconic experience as one moves through the corridor at multiple modes of travel, while improving circulation and safety. These elements combine to create a complete street experience.
