Last Tuesday, SDOT project staff hosted the third and final public meeting for the North Beacon Safety Connections project. SDOT uses drop-in sessions to reach stakeholders where they already gather and we held this community drop-in session in the hour prior to the North Beacon Hill Council’s September 9 (NBHC) meeting. Approximately [30] people stopped by this event at the Beacon Hill Library to see the final project plans and learn more about what to expect during construction that will start this October.

The North Beacon Safety Connections project will build a new, continuous sidewalk and an uphill bike lane on Beacon Avenue S between Holgate Street and 14th Avenue South, build two curb bulbs at 14th Avenue South and South College Street, and add an all-way stop and marked crosswalks at Beacon Avenue South and 14th Avenue South. We will upgrade and install curb ramps that are compliant with current American Disability Act (ADA) standards throughout the project area as well.
