SR 900/68th Ave S Vicinity – Pedestrian Safety – Phase 2 PCCP & Deck Overlay – Completed

Project overview

In the Bryn Mawr-Skyway area of King County between Seattle and Renton, just west of 68th Avenue South, we worked with King County Metro to build 500 feet of new sidewalk and a raised platform for pedestrians to access a Metro bus stop on the east side of the highway.

This new section of sidewalk links a crosswalk at SR 900/68th Avenue South with a King County Metro bus shelter on SR 900. Previously, people reached the bus shelter by walking along the shoulder of a busy highway.

The project also added pedestrian safety improvements at the crosswalk at SR 900/68th Avenue South, such as accessible pedestrian signals for pedestrians who are blind or visually impaired.

Crews also improved drainage, landscaping and lighting as part of this project.

Construction on the new sidewalk along SR 900 and the pedestrian safety improvements at the intersection of SR 900/68th Avenue South finished in May.
