April 11, 2013

This project is complete.

Project Update - March 25, 2013

The project team is currently scheduling final action items that were identified during the post-construction inspection.

The work began Wednesday, March 20 and is expected to be complete by Friday, March 29, weather permitting. 

What to Expect During Repairs

  • Work hours 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday to Friday, weather permitting

Project Overview

The community is committed to building the new sidewalk and drainage improvements and successfully competed for funding through the Neighborhood Street Fund (NSF), a city-administered program that works with communities to prioritize and build neighborhood projects.  Additional funding has been provided through a grant from the King Conservation District.

Project Location

25th Ave SW between SW Brandon and Findlay Streets

Project Description

  • New sidewalks,
  • Curbs,
  • Rain gardens, and
  • Street trees in planting strip area.

These changes will improve the pedestrian environment by providing a landscaped buffer from traffic; improve drainage and traffic calm the street.  The new street width on 25th Ave SW will be 25’ wide with parallel on-street parking on both sides of the street.  The narrowed street width will have a traffic calming benefit for the neighborhood and further enhance pedestrian safety.
