Pre-construction Q&A at Avalon/35th/Alaska open house

Until 7 pm, you can drop in at American Legion Post 160 in The Triangle (3618 SW Alaska) to ask questions and get info about SDOT‘s soon-to-start Avalon/35th/Alaska project.

It’ll repave the entirety of Avalon, between the West Seattle Bridge and Fauntleroy Way, as well as three blocks of 35th SW south of Avalon and one block of SW Alaska west of 35th. Avalon will also be reconfigured as part of the project, as shown here. While the final design was announced earlier this year, details that are just emerging now include the timeline and where the work will start. Project coordinator Adonis Ducksworth says the stretch on 35th is likely to be the first site:

The 35th section will have to be rebuilt, with a new water main, because of damage done in a break. On Avalon, Ducksworth says, the Genesee to Yancy stretch is likely to be the first site, and the crew might move northward during summer, which Luna Park CafĂ© owner John Bennett says would be the worst possible time of year for his business – the summer peak. He is among those we’ve seen and heard here and the doors are open to all until 7. P.S. If you have questions but can’t get here – the project mailbox is avalonpaving@seattle.gov.

    When are they going to repave sylvan way by home depot and the cemetery? That hill needs some TLC.

    Does repaving include rebuilding the 35th/Avalon intersection and eliminating the hump in the middle?

    Thanks @ WSB. That PDF is what I was looking for. Looks like they will fix the 2 worst intersections (paving wise) in that area.  From that rotary viewpoint area (our newest homeless encampment, yay!), I wish the paving would go a few more blocks of 35th  uphill to Hudson and two more blocks n Alaska west to Fauntleroy to fix the really bad pieces of road that are damaged by the heavy buses.All the regular attentive drivers on 35th know that you drive up/down constantly changing lanes to avoid the bus damaged parts. This project is a great start to be able to safely drive in lanes up/down 35th.
