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 an improved connection between Beacon Hill and 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. The public comment and appeal periods have closed.
