14thBeaconMapThe idea is to make it safer and easier for kids, neighbors and families to walk and bike in the neighborhood. Improvements include (click map to see larger version showing locations): 

  • a new sidewalk on Beacon Avenue S
  • intersection realignment at Beacon Avenue S and 14th Avenue S
  • curb bulbs at 14th Avenue S and S College Street
  • a new ramp on the Holgate Street bridge leading to SODO.

Many of these improvements were recommended in plans including the Southeast Transportation Study (SETS), Beacon B.I.K.E.S. Circulation Plan, and applications through Neighborhood Park and Street Fund.

See you next Wednesday with details!
