Two new crosswalks planned for Delridge Way SW

As part of the Safe Routes to School program, SDOT plans to install two new marked school crosswalks on Delridge Way Southwest near the Louisa Boren Building, located on Delridge south of Southwest Juneau Street. These crosswalks will serve students attending Arbor Heights and K-5 STEM schools at the Boren building.

One crosswalk will be provided midblock near the front door of the school, connecting the school to the Longfellow Creek Trail. Another crosswalk will be provided at 24th Avenue Southwest connecting the school to Metro bus stops and High Point by way of the Graham Street stairs. Both crosswalks will have some form of push-button activated stop light or warning light.

Both crosswalks are tentatively scheduled to be constructed this year with funding provided through a combination of Safe Routes to School and Neighborhood Park and Street Fund.
