SURVEY: Getting to/from Delridge via Brandon and/or Findlay

During the planning process for the now-underway project paving the way for the RapidRide H Line, the so-called Brandon Node area was a major focus of concern – some for example wanted to see the RR H stop at Brandon rather than Findlay, since the former already has a signal, as well as a library. Nonetheless, the stop is going in at SW Findlay, and the city is now seeking input on ways to get people to/from there, as well as SW Brandon:

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) and Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) invite the Delridge and High Point communities to participate in creating better pedestrian connections in the Delridge neighborhood. Please take a tour of the site by watching this video:

Visit surveymonkey.com/r/C9HBJCF to provide input.

This design project will provide a plan for improving pedestrian paths along SW Brandon and SW Findlay streets and make trail entries to Camp Long and Longfellow Creek more open and welcoming to the public. One of the goals of this project is to improve access for the future new RapidRide H Line stops that will begin service in 2021 at SW Findlay and Delridge.

    I guess putting the stop at Brandon where there is already a stop that people are used to, a light for crossing, a library and other services, that just made too much sense. I’d be interested to know their reasoning for moving the stop to Findlay.

    So let me get this straight………after countless public meetings, meetings with countless community groups and countless surveys where SDOT asked these same questions we are being asked to do what? Excuse me if I am a bit skeptical. But when you do the same thing over and over again expecting a different result it is typically called…..wait for it…..INSANITY.

    How will the improved trails be maintained? Will there be ongoing costs planned in the budget for regular safety and maintenance? I’m not so sure I would feel safe walking the woods on my own, nor would I want my kids to. I have the same concerns for stairways that lead to Delridge and future RR from surrounding areas, e.g. stairways at Myrtle and Holden, among others.Stairs and trails are not maintained, are littered with trash and graffiti, and feel unsafe even midday.

    Anyone walked along the east side of Delridge recently, say the mile or so South of Louisa Boren school? It is so unmaintained you need a machete to cut through some of those overgrown weeds. How are they going to maintain a path through a forest?!?

      Omg yes! I got so fed up I had to walk on the edge of the street. Wish they would tend to those weeds ASAP it’s unbelievable.

      That’s always been the case along Delridge, at SW Dakota, along the undeveloped properties. Have to call find it fix it during growing season. You can either work your way thru blackberries or walk in the bus lane.
