We Want Your Input on 23rd Ave S Improvements!

You’re invited to check out the design for the 23rd Avenue Corridor Improvements Project and participate in an online open house through Friday, July 28! Learn more about the City’s plans to improve 23rd Ave S from S Jackson St to Rainier Ave S, ask questions, and share your feedback about the second phase of the project.

Project staff connecting with the community at an open house July 19.

Phase 2 of the project includes a variety of improvements to help enhance safety and mobility for people who walk, drive, and take transit, as well as important infrastructure improvements.

North of S Holgate St, 23rd Ave S will be modified from two lanes in each direction to one wider lane in each direction with a center turn lane. This configuration is also in place on 23rd Ave from S Jackson St to E Madison St as a result of Phase 1 construction.

The project also includes proposed improvements for people using the intersection at 23rd Ave S and Rainier Ave S and S Hill St. The end result will be safer and less complicated pedestrian crossings and reduced potential for collisions. The second phase of construction is expected to begin as early as the first quarter of 2018 and last approximately one year.
