SDOT conducted two Walking Tours last week to inform people and collect feedback on the Fauntleroy Boulevard Project that is set to transform the “gateway to the neighborhood” starting later this year.
About 35 to 40 people showed up for each tour which took people from the corner of Fauntleroy Way SW and Alaska Street SW down to West Seattle Brewing on 36th Avenue SW to give them a ground level look at the changes coming and complete what is said to be a project about 60 percent complete in design.
SDOT’s project page describes it this way:
“Fauntleroy Way SW serves many purposes; it is a key entrance to West Seattle, a major truck street, a bike route, and is home to numerous retail businesses and new residential developments. Today, this area presents several challenges that impact mobility for users, including: poorly defined sidewalks, significant distances between marked pedestrian crossings, no dedicated space for people riding bikes, and minimal landscaping.
