S Jackson St Corridor Improvements

What's happening now?

Construction starts as soon as this spring

We're still in the process of selecting the contractor for the south and central NSF projects. Until the contractor is chosen, we won't know which part of the project will be constructed first.

With that said, you can expect construction of the S Jackson corridor to begin as soon as mid-May. We'll be in touch again later this spring with more details about the schedule and anticipated construction impacts. Typical impacts include noise from construction equipment, parking and loading restrictions, and dust.

We'll provide notification in advance of construction here and through our project email.

Sign up for email updates or check this website in the summer for more information.

In the meantime, please continue to send us your comments and questions to: NSFSJackson@seattle.gov

Project Description

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will make improvements along S Jackson St between 20th Pl S and Martin Luther King Jr Way S to enhance pedestrian safety, improve connections and efficiency, and help make this part of S Jackson St the neighborhood's "Main Street." In 2016, the S Jackson St Corridor Improvements project was one of 12 selected by the Levy to Move Seattle Oversight Committee to be funded through SDOT's Neighborhood Street Fund (NSF) program. The NSF program funds projects requested by the community.

Project Elements

Project improvements include the installation of:

  • Extension of the south curb bulb and installation of Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFBs) at the mid-block, marked crosswalk between Dr. Blanche Lavizzo Park and Washington Middle School
  • Real-time information signs (RTIS) at the bus stops at S Jackson St and 23rd Ave S

Project Benefits

  • Improved visibility and safety for people walking and biking across S Jackson St at Washington Middle School
  • Shorter crossing distance and improved safety for people walking at 26th Ave S
  • Information about bus arrival times for transit travelers

Project Funding

Funding comes from the 2015 voter-approved, 9-year Levy to Move Seattle, which will improve safety for all travelers, maintain streets and bridges, and invest in reliable, affordable travel options for a growing city. The levy includes $24 million to continue the Neighborhood Street Fund program over the nine years.

Public Outreach and Engagement

We're committed to keeping you informed throughout the life of the project. You can expect outreach to adjacent project neighbors in 2017. Please contact us at any time. Sign up for email updates
