Pedestrian improvements around Hawthorne Start July 2nd!!!!!

At long last SDOT is scheduled to start work on the pedestrian improvements around Hawthorne next week. Below is an email from SDOT with the details. Click here for the Construction Notice.


I’m writing to let you know that construction of the Hawthorne Elementary and S Genesee St Safer Community Pedestrian Connections project will begin as soon as Monday, July 2, 2018. Crews will work intermittently at the five locations until the entire project is complete, which will take approximately 8 weeks. Crews will begin by saw cutting at 42nd Ave S and S Snoqualmie St and at 38th Ave S and S Angeline St. You can find more information in the attached construction notice. We will be sending this information out to the email list this afternoon. More details are below. 

We're glad this project is being constructed!

Thank you,
Kate

About this project

We’re making improvements in this area for people walking and biking. In 2016, the Hawthorne Elementary and S Genesee St Safer Community Pedestrian Connections project was one of 12 selected by the Levy to Move Seattle Oversight Committee to be funded through the SDOT's Neighborhood Street Fund (NSF) program. The NSF program funds projects requested by the community.
