Project Description


click to view larger

The Seattle Department of Transportation is planning to construct several pedestrian transportation safety improvements along Delridge Way SW between SW Andover Street and the West Seattle Bridge Trail. This project will help improve the connection for pedestrians and bicyclists from the West Seattle Bridge multi-use trail to the signalized intersection at Delridge Way SW and SW Andover St, and beyond to the Delridge and West Seattle neighborhoods. Most importantly, this project will improve safety for all roadway users.

Project elements include:

  • Widened sidewalk along the  east side of Delridge Way SW
  • Curb ramps at Delridge Way SW and SW Andover St
  • Redesign of 23rd Ave SW where it meets Delridge Way SW to reduce the pedestrian crossing distance and provide uninterrupted sidewalk

Project Benefits

The goal of these pedestrian safety improvements is to help make Delridge safer and more comfortable for a variety of travel modes. The work includes:

  • More sidewalk capacity for pedestrians and bicyclists
  • ADA compliant curb ramps, for smoother and improved access for pedestrians and bicyclists
  • Safer connection between the Delridge Neighborhood Greenway and the West Seattle Bridge Trail

Funding

This work is jointly funded by the Washington State Department of Transportation Pedestrian and Bicycle Program, the Neighborhood Park and Street Fund, and the Bicycle Master Plan.

Schedule

These improvements recently reached 100 percent design. The project team anticipates moving to construction as early as July 2014.
