Sidewalk Development Program: 35th Avenue SW Sidewalk Project

Construction expected to start Wednesday September 26th

Expect parking restrictions

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will build a new sidewalk and make other pedestrian improvements on 35th Avenue SW.  Work is scheduled to begin the week of September 24th and is expected to be completed by the end of October, weather permitting.

This project is part of the “Bridging the Gap” transportation levy approved by Seattle voters in November 2006 and funded by the Sidewalk Development Program (SDP), a city-administered program that builds sidewalks throughout the city.

Project Area

The new sidewalk will be on the west side of 35th Avenue SW, between SW 97th Street and SW 100th Street.

Project elements

  • Building a new sidewalk on the west side of 35th Avenue SW.
  • Building new pedestrian curb ramps at the intersections within the project limits.
  • Constructing new driveway openings to connect new sidewalk and existing driveways.
  • Installing new drainage.
  • Modify the southbound lane configuration on 35th Avenue SW north of SW Roxbury St to a left turn only lane and a shared right turn and through lane.

What to Expect During Construction:

  • Work hours 7am - 5pm; Monday - Friday
  • Temporary driveway closures (5-7 days)
  • Parking and loading restrictions near work zones
  • Selective vegetation removal
  • Pedestrian detours
  • Moderate construction noise and dust
  • Traffic may be reduced to one lane with alternating traffic directions.
