Avalon repaving/rechannelization plan reaches next design phase; SDOT sets open-house meeting Thursday

In early June, SDOT held an open-house meeting to talk with community members about the SW Avalon Way repaving/rechannelization plan once it reached the “30 percent design” phase. They promised they’d be back in the fall once it hit the next milestone, “60 percent design.” That’s apparently running a bit ahead of schedule, because SDOT says it’s there now and they’ll be here next Thursday (August 23rd) to talk about it at another open house. The updated design hasn’t been made public yet – we’re expecting to see it in the next few days, before the meeting – but a postcard sent to area homes and businesses to announce the open house says in part:

Based on your feedback, we’re providing more parking on SW Avalon Way and taking some measures to reduce peak-hour neighborhood cut-through traffic.

The “30 percent design plan” shown in June proposed removing about a dozen street parking spaces on the west side of Avalon in the Luna Park business district. In addition to repaving/rechannelizing Avalon, the proposal also would pave three blocks of 35th SW between Avalon and Alaska, and one block of Alaska between 35th and 36th. This Thursday’s open-house meeting is set for 5:30-7:30 pm at American Legion Post 160 (“the building with the cannon out front”), 3618 SW Alaska.
