Green Lake Path lines to be painted on May 2

Visitors to Green Lake Park on Saturday, May 2 will see the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) painting the center yellow line on the Green Lake pedestrian path. SDOT will begin work at 9 a.m. and anticipates the project will take 6 to 8 hours.  The lines on the Green Lake path define the rules of use for many thousands of people per year and help regulate congestion on the path. The City asks park visitors for their patience and cooperation during the painting.

Seattle Parks and Recreation contracted with SDOT for the work. This City collaboration provides a more efficient way to paint the path and will minimize the amount of time the path is closed to the community. Use of the SDOT truck will enable completion of this work in a shorter time frame than is typical and will provide more visible, long lasting lines. On Saturday, SDOT will provide a pilot truck for the paint truck and staff will tail the paint truck to warn pedestrians as the wet paint is applied.

The path will remain open and visitors using the path will be detoured around the painting project vehicles.

Parks and SDOT hope to engage in more collaborative projects in the future.
