SDOT will be closing one lane of southbound traffic on Rainier Avenue South between South College Street and 23rd Avenue South for two weeks beginning Monday, Jan.12. The single lane closure will be in effect Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., and nightly, 8 p.m. to 7 a.m. Weather permitting, original lane configurations will be restored by Monday, Jan. 26.
Crews will be installing new sidewalks and Americans with Disabilities (ADA) mandated curb ramps as part of the 23rd Avenue South and South Walker Street Area Pedestrian Safety Improvements Project. Once work in this area is complete, crews will begin construction along 23rd Avenue South between South Waite and South College streets, as well as along two blocks of College and Walker streets.
This work is part of the SDOT’s effort to make streets in North Beacon Hill safer and more accessible for all, and is funded by the nine-year voter approved Bridging the Gap Levy. More information about the project can be found at: http://www.seattle.gov/transportation/23rdWalkerImprovements.htm
