Project Overview

We're planning to pave SW Avalon Way and a segment of 35th Ave SW as soon as 2019, following completion of the Fauntleroy Way SW Boulevard Project.

In addition to paving the street and striping lanes, potential project features include:

  • Updating street design with consideration for people, biking, walking, driving, and taking transit
  • Upgrading curb ramps to make sidewalks more accessible for everyone
  • Repairing cracked and buckled sidewalks

Project Description

bike lane

Arterial streets are primary routes for moving people and goods through the city and connecting neighborhoods and business districts to one another and the regional transportation network.

Each year, we pave arterial streets in poor condition to make them safer, smoother, and to extend their useful life. Keeping our transportation system in a state of good repair helps lower the cost of future maintenance.

We prioritize paving based on pavement condition, traffic volume, geographic equity, cost, and opportunities for grants or coordination with other projects in the area.
