The ferry queue, especially during summer times, weekends and holidays, can stretch past the north end of Lincoln Park. Cars would line up along Fauntleroy north of the park and would also line up along 47th Avenue SW with the two lines competing to form a single queue. FCA raised the alarm about the growing ferry queue which would clog 47th as well as Lincoln Park Way, blocking driveways and endangering residents along the narrow streets. In 2001, after FCA received support from the Department of Neighborhoods, Seattle Department of Transportation agreed to apply funds from Washington State Ferries to construct the curb bulb. The curb was designed to discourage queuing along 47th Avenue and with more prompting from FCA, signs were installed instructing drivers to line up on Fauntleroy.
