Pedestrians will soon enjoy new improvements on 28th Avenue NW between NW Market Street and NW 57th Street. Seattle Department of Transportation paving crews expect to begin construction during the second or third week of August depending on completion of work at another location. On-street parking will be restricted in the work area. The crews estimate it will take three to four weeks to complete the project.
SDOT’s crews will install a curb between NW 56th and 57th on both sides of the street and the one-half block just south of 56th Street on the eastside of the street. The curb will provide a better walking environment by creating a buffer between the sidewalk and the street, and will provide a protected area for landscaping by preventing cars from parking on the planting strip area. This fall, trees will be planted on both sides of the street. When completed, the width of the street will be the standard for residential streets with parking on both sides, similar to the blocks to the north. The current on-street parallel parking will remain in place following construction.
This improvement was requested by local residents and is funded by the Neighborhood Projects Fund, a city-administered program that works with communities to prioritize and build neighborhood projects.
