PROJECT OVERVIEW

(1) Washington Street Pier: The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is planning to clean and paint the exterior of the Washington Street Pier (pergola) located on Alaskan Way South at the intersection of South Washington Street. This is in response to the need to prevent corrosion of the steel components and to protect the wood siding of the Washington Street Pergola from weathering, and protect its historic integrity. The pergola, situated in the Pioneer Square Historic District, is currently used as a covered, outdoor public space with benches and views of Elliot Bay (Puget Sound). The project will paint all the steel components of the pergola including the steel railing.

(2) Fairview Avenue N bridge railings: SDOT is going to clean and paint the east and west side railings of the bridge at Fairview Ave. N. The proposed activity is in response to the need to prevent corrosion of the steel railings. There is approximately 964 ft of bridge railing to be painted on the bridge. The majority of the work will be performed over Lake Union. The bridge is located in the Shoreline Urban Maritime and Shoreline Conservatory Waterway Shoreline zones in the South Lake Union neighborhood.

(3) E Boston Terrace bridge railings: SDOT is going to clean and paint the railings of the bridge at East Boston Terrace. The proposed activity is in response to the need to prevent corrosion of the steel railings. There is approximately 250 ft of bridge railing to be painted on the bridge. The bridge is located on East Boston Terrace in the Montlake neighborhood north of Louisa Boren Park.

(4) Holman Road over 8th Ave NW bridge railings: SDOT is going to clean and paint the railings of the bridge on Holman Road. The proposed activity is in response to the need to prevent corrosion of the steel railings. There is approximately 135 ft of bridge railing to be painted on the bridge. The Bridge is located at the intersection of Holman Road NW and 8th Avenue NW between the Crown Hill and Greenwood Neighborhood

(5) Carkeek Park over BNSF Railroad: SDOT is going to clean and paint the railings of the pedestrian bridge at Carkeek Park over the BNSF Railroad. The proposed activity is in response to the need to prevent corrosion of the steel railings. SDOT is painting the pedestrian bridge on behalf of the Seattle Department of Parks & Recreation.
