Sidewalk Construction Underway on Third Avenue West

SDOT paving crews are constructing a sidewalk on the west side

of Third Avenue West between West Halladay and West Smith streets,

filling gaps in the existing sidewalk network. The paving crew chief

estimates they will complete the work by May 24. The provision of a

continuous sidewalk will increase safety and make it easier and more

pleasant to walk in the area.

This location is part of SDOT’s 2010 sidewalk improvement program and

was selected using Seattle’s Pedestrian Master Plan designed to make

Seattle the most walkable city in the nation. The top ranked sidewalk

projects are ones that fill in gaps in existing sidewalks on busy

streets and that are located in high priority areas for pedestrian

improvements. For more information about the program, see the website,
