North Beacon Safety Connections
The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is planning to make it safer and easier for kids, neighbors and families to walk and bike in your neighborhood. Specifically, this includes a new sidewalk on Beacon Avenue S, intersection realignment at Beacon Avenue S and 14th Avenue S, curb bulbs at 14th Avenue S and S College Street, and a new ramp on the Holgate Street bridge leading to SODO. Many of these improvements were recommended in plans including the Southeast Transportation Study (SETS), Beacon B.I.K.E.S. Circulation Plan, and applications through Neighborhood Park and Street Fund.
After a careful environmental review, the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) has determined that the North Beacon Safety Connections Project will not have a probable significant adverse impact on the environment. SDOT is required to consider the environmental consequences of proposed projects under the Washington State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA). SDOT issued a Determination of Non-Significance (DNS) on Friday, February 14, 2014. The SEPA checklist, linked below, includes a summary of the project’s impacts on water quality, air quality, plants, animals, hazardous materials, noise, land use, light, recreation, cultural resources, parking, and other disciplines. A 14-day public comment period began on February 14, 2014 and ends on February 28, 2014. A seven-day appeal period that ends on March 7, 2014 will follow.
Please refer to the DNS below for more information on providing comments and submitting appeals.
