STREETS | 45th Ave SW and SW Admiral Way

Crossing Improvements

Project Overview

45th Ave SW and SW Admiral Way is a key intersection for many residents, parents, and students who access the Admiral business district, Lafayette Elementary School and the westbound transit stop, located on SW Admiral Way east of 45th Ave SW. We'll install a new curb bulb on the northeast corner, new curb ramps, new marked crosswalk, and adding a pair of rectangular rapid flashing beacons on the east leg to shorten the crossing distance for people walking, improve overall visibility, improve accessibility, enhance safety, and effectively calms traffic.

Project Solutions

  • Install new curb bulb and curb ramps
  • Install a marked crosswalk with rectangular rapid flashing beacons

Neighborhood: Admiral

Total Cost: $120,000
YVYC Funds: $120,000

STREETS | 16th Ave SW and SW Holden St

Intersection Improvements

Project Overview

The jog in east-west traffic through Highland Park at 16th Ave SW requires several turns at two closely-spaced intersections each with their own traffic signals. Due to this layout and traffic volumes, vehicle queues can back into nearby intersections and create confusion for all users. We'll stripe the street to accommodate the turning queues to clarify traffic movements and improve traffic safety.

Project Solutions

  • Add new left-turn pockets for northbound and southbound traffic at the 16th Ave SW and SW Holden St intersection
  • Revise the existing left-turn pocket for northbound traffic at the 16th Ave SW and SW Austin St intersection

Neighborhood: Highland Park

Total Cost: $30,000
YVYC Funds: $30,000

Project Schedule and Updates

We anticipate construction as soon as spring/summer 2020.

STREETS | SW Barton St between 23rd Ave SW and 24th Ave SW

Walkway Improvements

Project Overview

Currently, a gravel pathway on the south side of SW Barton St connects existing sidewalks east of 21st Ave SW and west of 24th Ave SW. Given the budget limits of this program, only 1 new block of sidewalk can be built at this time. Upgrading the gravel pathway to a sidewalk will improve safety and accessibility for people walking and people in wheelchairs.

Project Solutions

  • Build new sidewalk on the south side of SW Barton St between 23rd Ave SW and SW 24th Ave SW
  • Build/upgrade curb ramps at the corners

Neighborhood: South Delridge

Total Cost: $112,700
YVYC Funds: $112,700

Project Schedule and Updates

We anticipate construction as soon as fall/winter 2020.
