Sunshine on Our Shoulders for the ‘Find It Fix It’ Walk in Highland Park

More than 50 people turned out on one of the nicest evenings of the year to join Mayor Ed Murray, District One Councilmember Lisa Herbold, and SDOT and other City staff in Highland Park last week, for the most recent Find It, Fix It community walk of 2017.

Mayor Murray, Councilmember Herbold, and Highland Park neighbors at Highland Park Way & SW Holden St.

We talked with neighbors along the route about recent and upcoming projects to improve mobility and safety for all users in this growing neighborhood, such as a proposed roundabout at Highland Park Way and SW Holden St, that the neighborhood has been requesting for several years.

SDOT’s Jim Curtin talks with neighbors about upcoming transportation improvements.

Vision Zero manager Jim Curtin also talked about the Delridge-Highland Park neighborhood greenway that was installed in 2016, and a Safe Routes to School project that improved a crossing at 11th Ave and Holden St.

Our Pothole Rangers showing the neighbors how crews fill potholes.

Our Pothole Rangers also came along, filling pothole requests from neighbors and encouraging everyone to use the Find It, Fix It app on their mobile devices to report potholes around the city.

Thanks to everyone who joined us!

The next Find It Fix It community walk is scheduled for early July in the First Hill Neighborhood.
