Are you a walker or a bike rider? If so, we’ve got a set of plans for improvements that we think are pretty cool! Before the end of the year, area neighbors and commuters can expect to see a new sidewalk and bike lane on Beacon Avenue S, intersection realignment at Beacon Avenue S and 14th Avenue S, and curb bulbs at 14th Avenue S and S College Street! Many of these improvements were recommended by neighbors just like YOU and included in plans like the Southeast Transportation Study (SETS), Beacon B.I.K.E.S. Circulation Plan, and applications through the Neighborhood Park and Street Fund.

Mountains to Sound Trail: On the left where it connects to Daejeon Park and on the right where it connects to S Holgate Street.

The sidewalk along Beacon Ave S will also provide a connection between the Beacon Hill business district and the Mountains to Sound Trail. These improvements will also make it safer and more comfortable for families to walk and bike to Beacon Hill International School.

Stay tuned for more information on the timing of when these great improvements will begin  – hopefully before the end of the year!
