Of the 11 streets projects the city announced yesterday evening, most will add sidewalks and/or crossing improvements for pedestrians around the city. Mayor Mike McGinn and Councilmember Tom Rasmussen attended the press conference in to announce the projects, outlined below, which vary in cost and ambition. Most are in the south and north ends of the city where pedestrian (and bike) facilities are often lacking.
Two projects are of particular interest to those on two wheels. Bike and pedestrian facilities will be added to S Othello St from Seward Park Ave to Chief Sealth Trail, a stretch of about a mile. The plans also call for reconstruction of the intersection at Fairview Ave E and Fairview Ave N, which would certainly be a welcome endeavor.
