12th Avenue Improvements
Last updated: December 21, 2015
SDOT is adding safety improvements at two intersections in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. The project will feature new curb extensions ("bulbs") at all four corners of the intersections of E Howell and E Olive streets on 12th Ave. These improvements will make the roadway more predictable and improve access to nearby destinations for all users, with new curb ramps that meet current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards.
The goal of these improvements is to allow safer crossings for pedestrians and improve mobility for all users. Curb bulbs help reduce crossing lengths and improve visibility between people walking and people driving. The work will include:
The 12th Ave project is one of 12 selected by the Bridging the Gap Oversight Committee to be completed as part of the Neighborhood Street Fund program, funded by the Bridging the Gap (BTG) transportation levy, approved by Seattle voters in November 2006 and scheduled to expire at the end of this year.
We completed final design in 2014. Crews began construction on September 30, and will return to finish paving and roadway striping when weather conditions are favorable.
