Sheridan Avenue Missing Links Sidewalks

Project Description

Construct sections of sidewalk along Sheridan Avenue between South 72nd Street & South 84th Street to provide sidewalks on at least one side of the street along the entire length. Project includes constructing sidewalks, ADA compliant crossings, sections of curb with areas of landscape/trees, and improving bus stops.

 

Project Benefits

The project will provide safer connections between major arterial streets, a safer walking route to Birney Elementary, improved Pierce Transit Route 48 bus stops, and amenities.

 

Parking Impacts
