What's happening now?

Thank you to all who participated in the community prioritization process for this Neighborhood Street Fund project!  

This project is now being constructed as part of the Georgetown to South Park Connection. We're planning to construct both projects in 2022. 

Project Overview

In 2019, the South Park and Georgetown Safe Connections project was one of 15 selected projects by the Levy to Move Seattle Oversight Committee to be funded through SDOT's Neighborhood Street Fund Program. The project, located at the intersection of E Marginal Way S and 16th Ave S aims to improve safety and comfort for people walking and biking across the street.

  • New bike lane protection for the southbound bike lane on E Marginal Way S as it approaches the intersection of 16th Ave S

Benefits
