The plan for the S Lander St Bridge Project is to build a bridge on S Lander St between 1st Ave S and 4th Ave S to reduce traffic delays while increasing safety and mobility for all users in that neighborhood. We’ve been hearing feedback from the community about its new design.
At an open house last Thursday, about 40 people from the community, local businesses, and property owners joined us in SODO to hear the latest updates on the bridge’s design, which is now 30% complete. The current design is a result of feedback from stakeholders, as well as residents after an initial open house and online open house in June.
People at the open house learned about how public input was incorporated into the current design, which includes a multi-use path on the bridge’s north side, as well as improved access on 3rd Ave S and Occidental Ave S. They also got a chance to see visualizations of what the bridge could look like. Comments at the meeting focused on bicycle and pedestrian connectivity and safety, parking, and business access.
Still Time to Give Feedback
- You can still review the materials and submit feedback on urban design options on our online open house open through Friday, September 30: participate.online
- Check out our website to view the display boards and presentation shown last week
- Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The project team will consider this latest round of input, including urban design preferences, as we move forward in the design phase. Thanks to all who attended the meeting or have submitted comments. We’re committed to building a bridge that meets the needs of the community, and your feedback helps us get there!
