New Information
WSDOT on Dayton Planning Remodel/New Building Construction

130 Trees Proposed for Removal
Background: WSDOT has applied for multiple permits to remodel their existing facility located on Dayton Ave N, between N.155th and N.160th.  This remodel will allow for the relocation of the State Department of Ecology (DOE) to this site, including a new building which will store DOEs fleet vehicles.  Due to the size of this remodel and construction, the City requires improvements along Dayton Ave N (WSDOT side only) including street pavement widening for on-street parking and bus stops; new curbs; 5-foot wide amenity zone (typically a landscaping strip), and 8-foot wide sidewalks. According to information provided by the City to the community on Nov. 18, approximately 130 of the 378 existing trees along Dayton Ave. N, N.155th and N.160th are proposed for removal, "though this is not the final count of trees to be removed/retained". 
City contact: Caleb Miller, Associate Planner, email

UPDATE:  Here is the WSDOT Project Update from the City (12/27/19).

Save Shoreline Trees
A community group has formed to address public concerns to the City and WSDOT regarding the proposed removal of trees on Dayton Ave N., N. 155th, and N. 160th.
