Open House: Lane Striping on Fauntleroy Way SW


(SEATTLE)--SDOT is considering re-striping Fauntleroy Way Southwest from Southwest Alaska Street to California Avenue Southwest to improve safety, pedestrian access and bicycle usage. When the street is paved, SDOT would reconfigure the motor vehicle travel lanes to provide one lane in each direction with a center turn lane. Also, the pedestrian crossings on Fauntleroy would be improved and bicycle lanes with shared lane pavement markings would be provided. SDOT does not anticipate removing parking.

To provide more information on the proposed changes, SDOT will hold an open house on Monday, December 1, from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. The meeting will be at the High Point Community Center, 6920 34th Avenue SW.

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.
