SDOT crews will begin working on sidewalk and other pedestrian and signal improvements on SW 35th Street in the Arbor Heights neighborhood on Wednesday, September 26. They expect to complete the project by the end of October, weather permitting. Traffic may be reduced to one lane at times, with a traffic flagger assisting traffic in each direction to take turns using the lane.
The new sidewalk will be on the west side of 35th Avenue SW, between SW 97th Street and SW 100th Street. The project includes new curb ramps and new drainage. Also, the southbound lane configuration on 35th Avenue north of SW Roxbury Street will be modified to provide a left turn only lane and a shared right turn and through lane.

This project is part of the “Bridging the Gap” transportation levy approved by Seattle voters in November 2006 and funded by the Sidewalk Development Program (SDP), a city-administered program that builds sidewalks throughout the city.
