The first open house about the upcoming 23rd Ave complete streets repaving and redesign will be held at Garfield Community Center March 2 from 2–4 p.m.
As we reported previously, the city has over $14 million from federal, state, regional and local transportation dollars to repave and redesign the street from Rainier Ave to E John St. The street not only connects the neighborhood’s major commercial centers at Union, Cherry and Jackson, but it will also be the neighborhood’s main connection to the Judkins Park East Link light rail station at I-90.
The street is also the most dangerous in the Central District, and creates a barrier to easy and safe travel on foot and bike. For more information, see the project webpage. The informational poster is below:
