Community meeting to learn about 15th Ave S improvements – Feb 26

We have fresh paving & intersection plans for 15th Ave S

This year we’ll begin repaving about a mile of 15th Ave S between S Spokane St and S Angeline St, repaving a section of S Spokane St between S Columbian Way and 18th Ave S, and improving the intersection near S Oregon St, 15th Ave S, and S Columbian Way.
This stretch of road is an important connection for people traveling between Beacon Hill and Rainier Valley. We want to ensure that these improvements contribute to a safer space for all travelers, and balance the needs of all modes of transportation, so that everyone can get where they need to go safely and conveniently.
