Greenwood Sidewalk Project: N 117th – 125th St

Updated November 22, 2022

What's Happening Now?

We’ve finished construction on Greenwood Ave N from N 117th St to N 125th St! Thank you for your continued patience while we completed this work. In the coming days, you may see crews on site wrapping up final items, cleaning, and removing equipment.

Together, we’ve completed:

  • New ADA curb ramps and sidewalk gutters
  • New sidewalks and planting strips
  • New driveway connections
  • Pedestrian signal improvements
  • New fencing and landscaping

You will see a combination of trees, shrubs and grass in the planting strips. Landscaping in the planting strip has been determined by SDOT Urban Forestry using several safety factors such as meeting clearance requirements and proximity to other trees, poles and driveways. This project will install 49 new trees along the corridor, and will provide the additional trees necessary to meet the 2 for 1 Executive Order Standard to be planted by SDOT Urban Forestry.

Thank you for your patience while we completed this work!
