39th Ave S and S Findlay St

Street Corner Upgrades

Project Description and Goals:
On 39th Ave S, north of Aki Kurose Middle School, street corners are missing at the intersection with S Findlay St. The lack of sidewalk corners enables drivers to turn faster making conditions for pedestrians challenging. Installing sidewalk corners calms drivers and enhances predictability, accessibility and safety.

Project Solution(s):

Install sidewalk corners with curb ramps at 39th Ave S and S Findlay St

Ensure that all corners meet ADA standards

Construction anticipated August - December 2018

Rainier Ave S and S Rose St

“Rose St Triangle” Upgrades

Project Description and Goals:
The Rose St Triangle is a City managed property in the Rainer Valley, near the Dunlap neighborhood. The location serves as a connection for commuters traveling to downtown Seattle and Capitol Hill on Metro routes 7 and 9. The Rose St Triangle suffers from substandard lighting and visibility, due to the overgrown landscape and the current pedestrian light location. Relocating or installing a new pedestrian light fixture and trimming the overgrown landscape increases nighttime visibility and creates a safer space for all travelers.

Project Solution(s):

Relocate or install new pedestrian light

Trim and maintain the overgrown landscape

Construction anticipated October - December 2018
