Arbor Heights Safe Routes to School Project: 35th Ave SW from SW 100th St to SW 106th S

Making it safer and easier for kids to walk and bike to school

Last updated: June, 2018

What’s happening now?

This project is now in construction. We are currently working to replace the stormwater drainage and detention system underground and this work requires full closure of 35th Ave SW between SW 104th St and SW 106th St. The closure will last through late June until we complete this work. Detours and reroutes to access Arbor Heights Elementary and Westside School are in place for the duration of the closure.

Project Overview

This Safe Routes to School project will make it safer and easier for kids to walk and bike to school by adding sidewalks and improving the intersections along 35th Ave SW, from SW 100th to SW 106th streets near Arbor Heights Elementary.

In addition to the new and widened sidewalks, project improvements will include:

  • A new parking strip along the west side of 35th Ave SW
  • Curb bulbs to shorten the crossing distance for people walking
  • ADA-compliant curb ramps for better accessibility
  • A new stormwater and detention system between SW 104th and SW 106th streets  

Similar projects are being constructed at 31 Seattle schools this year. Projects include new crosswalks, new sidewalks, new signals, and traffic calming on the walking routes to school.

SDOT completed final design in September 2016. Construction has begun and anticipated to reach completion early this fall.


This project is funded by the 9-year Levy to Move Seattle, approved by voters in 2015.  Additional funding comes from a Washington State Department of Transportation grant and our local Safe Routes To School program.
