Alki Sidewalk Improvements to Start March 16

The Seattle Department of Transportation’s contractor plans to begin construction of Alki Avenue SW sidewalk improvements on Monday, March 16.

The project will fill in gaps in the sidewalks along the water side of Alki Avenue SW, just west of Alki Beach to Beach Drive SW, providing a safe, accessible pedestrian walkway while minimizing impacts to parking and adjacent properties. In addition, improvements will be made to the intersection of Alki Ave SW and 63rd Ave SW to more clearly define the desired direction of arterial traffic.

The construction is expected to take eight to ten weeks, depending on the weather, and will be done in three phases. The first phase will be from Beach Drive SW to 3101 Alki Ave SW. The second phase will be from
3089 Alki Ave SW to the project limits just west of Alki Beach. The third phase will be improvements to the intersection at Alki Ave SW and 63rd Ave SW.

Parking will be restricted in the area under construction. Access to driveways will be maintained. Affected handicapped spaces will be temporarily relocated as needed during construction. On-street parking will be available overnight when safety considerations allow. Parking is also available at the parking lot in front of the lighthouse.

Work hours will typically be from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
