2019 has been busy!

The first quarter of 2019 was busy with snow, more snow, and even more snow, plus adapting our commute modes and adopting alternative work schedules to cope with the Seattle Squeeze, but it was also a big and busy quarter for Levy delivery.

 

Street improvements on 30th Ave NE

Today is April 30 and our deadline to publish the Q1 Levy report. Crews and contractors worked hard over the winter months (which can be a little slower due to inclement weather) to advance Move Seattle portfolio projects. Here are some of the high points:

  • 25 lane miles of paving is currently underway
  • 4.61 miles of protected bike lanes and 5.08 miles of greenways are in construction
  • 11.5 blocks of new sidewalks were built
  • New public art on Aurora Ave N was installed as part of community-led Neighborhood Street Fund project

$29M is the highest Q1 spending over the past four years – 2019 is off to a good start! Want to learn more?

Read the full report or attend the Levy Oversight Committee meeting next Tuesday, May 7.
