16th Avenue SW Paving Nearly Complete!

SEATTLE— The reconstruction of 16th Avenue SW between SW Findlay and SW Brandon streets is now substantially complete, with a dramatic improvement in what was a very dilapidated roadway.  Crews working for the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) rebuilt and slightly widened the road; made drainage improvements including a new storm drain and street drain inlets; repaved the walkway on the west side of the street; and rebuilt the concrete driveways.  They plan to finish striping along the roadway by mid month.

Repairing the 5400 block of 16th Ave SW, at north end of South Seattle Community College, took about eight weeks and wrapped up on-schedule.  This project is part of the Bridging the Gap transportation levy approved by Seattle voters in November 2006.
