SDOT redeveloped Linden Avenue North between North 128th and North 145th streets into a neighborhood-friendly roadway, improving safety for all users. The project included constructing the City’s first urban cycle track which completed a missing link of the Interurban Trail; providing a re-designed roadway that calms traffic and organizes parking; adding a new crosswalk and flashing beacon with infrared detection; adding all energy-saving LED lighting; installing green stormwater infrastructure; constructing new sidewalks and pedestrian railings; adding landscaping and street; lighting and more!
