Additionally, crews will prepare for drainage improvements on 21st Avenue Southwest, just south of where 22nd Avenue Southwest merges with 21st Avenue Southwest. The work will include installing a storm drain on the east side of 21st Avenue Southwest and repairing a storm drain on the west side of the street.

This work is a component of the Delridge-Highland Park Neighborhood Greenway which will connect White Center to the West Seattle Bridge Trail.
