Open House: Street improvements coming to South Park

SEATTLE-The Seattle Department of Transportation will hold an open house regarding improvements to 14th Avenue South, the main street in the South Park neighborhood. A portion of the funding for the project is from the Bridging the Gap transportation initiative approved by Seattle voters.

Date: Tuesday, January 22
Time: 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Where: South Park Community Center
8319 8th Avenue South

City staff will explain the project and invite comments on the project’s current design for 14th Avenue South between South Cloverdale Street and South Director Street.

The project will improve conditions for freight, pedestrians and general-purpose traffic, and will include improvements to street pavement, curb ramps, sidewalks, traffic signals, street lighting, and drainage. Street trees and public art will also be features of the project. The preliminary schedule calls for construction to begin in May and to be completed by the end of this year.

The Seattle Department of Transportation builds, maintains and operates Seattle's $8 billion transportation infrastructure. To further Mayor Nickels’ goal to get Seattle moving, the department manages short- and long-term investments in streets, bridges, pavement and trees, that better connect the city with the region.
