Project Overview

Elements

  • Accessible Curb (ADA) Ramps
  • Traffic Calming
  • Crosswalks

Benefits

  • Saftey improvements to the intersections will facilitate crossings for people walking and biking
  • New ADA-compliant curb ramps will improve access
  • Traffic circles have been shown to calm traffic speeds, improve pedestrian crossing safety, and reduce collisions
  • Traffic circles will present opportunities to add plants and reduce impervious surfacing to the intersections

Schedule

The NSF program runs on 3-year cycles to select, design, and build projects. The application phase for the 2019-2021 cycle opened October 2018 and projects will be constructed in 2021.

Project Background

In 2019, the S Andover St & S Dakota St Pedestrian Safety Enhancements

was one of 15 projects selected by the Levy to Move Seattle Oversight Committee to be funded through SDOT's Neighborhood Street Fund (NSF) Program. The project, located at 38th Ave S and S Dakota St and 38th Ave S and S Andover St aims to make it easier for people walking and biking to cross by updating ADA ramps and calming traffic speeds.

Note: funds not used for this project will be returned to the NSF program budget.
