Seattle – Now with More Sidewalks!

As we look forward to a new round of new sidewalk construction this summer, we thought we’d take one last look at some of the new sidewalks constructed in 2009.  Today we feature three projects.

The first, on 37th Avenue S, completed a missing link in the sidewalk network between S Thistle Street and S Rose Street.  The new walkway connects to Wing Luke Elementary School .

The next project built new sidewalks on S Walden Street between Martin Luther King Jr Way and 27th Avenue S.  This walkway also completed a missing link in the sidewalk network and provides access to Metro Transit and Link Light Rail.

We travel to northeast Seattle for the third project.   This new sidewalk connects to an existing sidewalk on the east side of 8th Ave NE between NE 92nd and NE 94th Streets and continued the walkway to NE 95th Street.  Curb was also installed along the existing sidewalks on the west side of the street.  8th Avenue NE now has sidewalks and curb on both sides of the street providing a safe walking route to Olympic View Elementary.
