New Sidewalk at 90th and Phinney Ave N

The Seattle Times submitted a number of reader questions about transportation related work around the city.  Reader comment:  “Poured an enlarged wheelchair ramp and then tore it (out) shortly afterward.”

This was a sidewalk project where the sidewalk went around a corner on a slope.  SDOT crews properly followed the design layout.  To improve safety, an SDOT supervisor made an on-site decision to move a curb ramp to exit on a side of the road with less of a slope.
