North 143rd Sidewalk Project Update
A message from Seattle Department of Transportation Project Manager Therese Casper:
Just wanted to update you on the progress for the N 143rd Street sidewalk project. SDOT is proceeding with designing a concrete sidewalk on the northside of N 143rd Street from 1st Ave NW to the existing asphalt walkway just west of Linden Ave N.
I will be contacting property owners along the street in the next month or two as building a new sidewalk typically involves repaving driveways, trimming / removing vegetation, and grade adjustments. In addition, the new street width on N 143rd Street will be 25’ with parking on both sides of the street. The narrowed street width will have a traffic calming benefit for the neighborhood and further enhance pedestrian safety.
Survey and potholing crews will be on-site in the next week or two to investigate some potential conflicts with utilities in the streets. This is typical of our design process.
