A Note from Principal Rhodes – Road Project in the Neighborhood

On Monday, November 30, both the north and south sides of the intersection at 15th Ave SW and SW Holden St were closed so crews could begin installing safety improvements. Improvements at this intersection will include new sidewalks and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) – compliant curb ramps at each corner, a pedestrian crossing signal and crosswalks on the east and west sides of the intersection. Those needing local access to 15th Ave SW are encouraged to use SW Webster St to the north of SW Kenyon St to the south. This work is expected to last up to two weeks.

Also closed for up to two weeks, beginning on Monday, November 30, is the west side of the intersection at SW Kenyon St and 16th Ave SW. Crews are building pedestrian safety improvements to include new sidewalk, new and upgraded curb ramps and crosswalks. Those needling local access are encouraged to use SW Elmgrove St via 16th Ave SW to SW Kenyon St.

Crews are also working at the intersection at 16th Ave SW and SW Webster St to build pedestrian safety improvements, including new crosswalks, new sidewalk, and new ADA-compliant curb ramps.

Crews have begun pouring sidewalk and curb ramps. Weather permitting, this work is expected to be completed by December 8.

The intersection at 21st Ave SW and SW Andover St is almost complete with a final sidewalk to be poured on the NE corner of the intersection.

The Delridge-Highland Park Neighborhood Greenway will connect West Seattle to White Center, running generally along 21st Ave SW in the north and 17th Ave SW in the south. Construction started in late August and will take approximately 4 months to complete, weather permitting. In general, construction will move from north to south while crews complete paving work and install curb ramps and curb extensions. Later this month, crews will return to install crosswalks, pavement markings, and signage throughout the corridor.

With the onset of the rainy season, our contractor sometimes needs to shift its schedule to do work that can be done when it’s raining, such as demolition and site preparation. Crews will use the dry days to pour concrete and asphalt and to install pavement markings.
