What's happening now?

June 2018 - Project Update

We're happy to report that the pedestrian safety improvements for the Wing Luke & Van Asselt Safe Routes to School Project are essentially complete! Thank you for your patience during construction.

Construction of these pedestrian safety improvements began in November 2017, and crews working for the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) completed work in April 2018.

If you have any remaining questions or concerns about the Wing Luke & Van Asselt Safe Routes to School Project, please contact us at or 206-727-3580.

Project Overview

The Wing Luke & Van Asselt Safe Routes to School (SRTS) project improves safety, accessibility for kids, families, and neighbors to walk and bike to Wing Luke and Van Asselt Elementary Schools along S Cloverdale St and 37th Ave S.

It also supports programs that educate and encourage kids to walk and bike safely to school. This will help achieve Seattle's Vision Zero to end traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030.

Before construction

This project includes:

  • New sidewalks and curb ramps on the north side of S Cloverdale St between Beacon Ave S and Martin Luther King Jr Way S
  • New sidewalks and curb ramps on the east side of 37th Ave S between S Cloverdale St and S Thistle St
  • New curbs, gutters, and planting strips with trees
  • On-street parking will be maintained in most locations
