The Seattle Department of Transportation constructed several pedestrian safety improvements near 50th Avenue S, Wilson Avenue S, and S Ferdinand St at 48th Avenue S and 49th Avenue S. Many of these improvements were identified as part of the Pedestrian Master Plan to improve pedestrian mobility and safety.
Project elements included:
- Curb bulb on the west leg of the intersection at 50th Avenue S and Wilson Avenue S and new sidewalk connection to the S Hudson stairway
- Curb ramps at all corners of the intersection of 50th Avenue S, Wilson Avenue S, and S Hudson Street
The goal of these safety improvements is to help make the neighborhood more comfortable for multiple travel modes. This project features:
- ADA-compliant curb ramps, for smoother and better access
- Expanded sidewalk and new connection to an existing stairway
This work was funded by Pedestrian Master Plan improvements and SDOT’s ADA Spot Improvement program, which improves access for people with disabilities.
These improvements reached 100 percent design in April 2014. The project team reached substantial completion in December 2014.
