Starting the week of March 31, Seattle Department of Transportation crews will be installing curb ramps at two locations with marked crosswalks on the Alki Trail in West Seattle. The curb ramps will improve safety and accessibility for everyone using these crosswalks.
One of the crosswalks is located at Harbor Avenue Southwest and California Way Southwest. The other is a midblock crosswalk on Harbor Avenue Southwest near the Don Armeni Boat Ramp. The crews expect to complete the work by the middle of April.
During construction, the sidewalk and trail may be closed to pedestrian and bicycle traffic at these two locations. Planned detour routes will be in effect, and will require trail and sidewalk users to exit the trail prior to the work zone, and then re-enter at the opposite side of the construction site. Bicycle traffic may need to dismount and walk their bike through construction areas. Signs will be in place to mark the designated detour route so pedestrians, bicycles, and vehicles can safely move around the construction zone.
This project is part of SDOT’s ADA Spot Improvement program to upgrade sidewalks and crosswalks to Americans with Disability Act standards. Funding is provided by the Bridging the Gap transportation levy. For more information, please contact Brian Dougherty at 206-684-5124 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
