New information about the 35th Avenue SW Safety Project today – including word of some repaving along part of the Phase 1 stretch, and a timeline update for Phase 2.
We asked SDOT about 35th SW in connection with the West Seattle Neighborhood Greenway project “outreach” that’s under way right now, since the greenway discussion has been linked to the 35th planning, including at the last major public meeting about 35th, last summer.
There was a small 35th update last month, as reported here, as part of a Vision Zero briefing for the City Council.
Now, more details – here’s what SDOT says will happen next:
*The before-and-after study of 35th SW’s Phase 1 is expected to be released in mid-July.
*SDOT tells us some repaving will follow: “After that, we will conduct pavement-restoration work in the Phase 1 project area where three segments of 35th Avenue SW, roughly between SW Trenton and SW Myrtle, will be repaved.”
*Design for 35th SW Phase 2 is under way, “and takes into account resident feedback collected in 2016.”
*More outreach for Phase 2 this fall.
*Then SDOT will “implement street-design changes north of SW Morgan” next year.
And as reported earlier this month, the “most promising route” for the separate but connecting West Seattle Neighborhood Greenway (to be built in 2019) proposes a crossing signal for 35th at Graham, where two people have been killed.
You can find out more about that and the rest of the greenway route at another drop-in event this Wednesday (June 21st), 5:30 pm-7 pm at Southwest Library, 9010 35th SW. We’re working on another greenway followup for tomorrow. No dates yet for 35th SW project-specific events, but you can watch that project’s page.
