   As the weather heats up and we move into the dog days of summer construction of the many Bridging the Gap (BTG) project are also heating up.  Thanks to BTG, a nine-year transportation initiative passed by Seattle voters in 2006, you are seeing a whole lot of construction activity across the city and you are about to start seeing more. The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is about to start construction on its 2013 sidewalk projects.  This year SDOT will deliver seven blocks of new sidewalk.

Project locations include:

  • on the north side of NE 125th Street between 35th Avenue NE and Sand Point Way NE
  • on the south side of N 90th Street between Dayton Avenue N and Fremont Avenue N
  • on the west side of 13th Avenue NW between NW 90th Street and Holman Road
  • on the north side of NW 90th Street between 12th Avenue NW and 13th Avenue N

Since the beginning of the BTG initiative SDOT has installed more than 90 blocks of new sidewalk and repaired more than 142 blocks.  Each of these projects is a step forward in implementing the Pedestrian Master Plan and help to make Seattle more walkable.
