Big makeovers for small spaces

We’re in the thick of the construction season at SDOT and projects of all sizes are being completed every week. Here are before and after shots of three smaller projects that wrapped up over the past couple months. Each one took a small space and gave it a big makeover with pedestrian lighting, new sidewalks and planting areas.

All three projects are from our Neighborhood Street Fund. They’re not huge headline-grabbers, but for the neighbors who use these spaces every day they’ll make a big impact. NSF projects are unique because they are proposed directly by the community. It requires a fair amount of commitment to see a project through the selection process, so the neighborhood residents who championed these improvements deserve credit for their success.
