The project nearing completion. Come see the finished product tomorrow!

Join the residents of the North Beacon Hill community and the Seattle Department of Transportation on Saturday, December 5th at 10 AM as we celebrate the completion of the Festival Street on S Lander St between 16th Ave S and 17th Ave S.

The Lander Festival Street will serve as an extension of the plaza north of the Beacon Hill Link Light Rail station and provide a space for community events.  The street features a new roadway with decorative pavers at the same level as the existing sidewalks to create a “curb-less” street, bollards and side treatments to delineate the roadway surface when the street is open to vehicles, and new landscaping.  The project also installed new pedestrian-scale lighting along the north sidewalk.

This project was brought about by the North Beacon Hill Community Council through the Bridging the Gap Neighborhood Street Fund (NSF) Large Project Program. The NSF Large Project Program is a community-based effort administered by the Seattle Department of Transportation and funded by the Bridging the Gap transportation levy approved by Seattle voters in November 2006.
