Environmental Assessment and Section 4(f) Analysis 
RapidRide Roosevelt Project (RapidRide J Line)
The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) released the RapidRide Roosevelt Environmental Assessment (EA) on January 8, 2020 for public review and comment. The EA has been prepared pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4231 et seq.). The public is also invited to provide comments on the Section 4(f) park and historic resource impacts at NE Ravenna Blvd described in the EA.

If no significant issues are identified during the comment period, the FTA would make the determination to issue a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI). A FONSI allows the project to move forward with final design.

RapidRide Roosevelt Project area and highlights
The RapidRide Roosevelt Project (RapidRide J Line) is a partnership between the City of Seattle and King County Metro to implement bus rapid transit serving the neighborhoods from Downtown to Roosevelt.

The purpose of the project is to improve transit travel times, reliability, and capacity to increase high-frequency, all-day transit service and enhance transit connections between Downtown Seattle and five neighborhoods (Belltown, South Lake Union, Eastlake, University District, and Roosevelt).

The project would also improve pedestrian and bicycle connections and access to RapidRide stations and would improve safety for both non-motorized and motorized travelers along the corridor.
