Project overview

In summer 2018, crews completed improvements for the Sanislo Elementary Safe Routes to School (SRTS) project, making it safer and easier for kids, families, and neighbors to walk and bike to Sanislo Elementary School through the intersections of SW Orchard St and 18th Ave SW and SW Myrtle St and 18th Ave SW. 

This project was part of Seattle's Vision Zero program to end traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030.
