SLIDESHOW: Upgraded curb ramps being installed at 35th s.w. and s.w. Alaska
SDOT paving crews are installing upgraded curb ramps at the intersection of 35th s.w. and s.w. Alaska Street. Working on one corner at a time, crews will close the curb lanes at the corner and provide a sidewalk detour.
The work will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and SDOT plans to complete the work by September 21.
They will also install an upgraded pedestrian signal push button for crossing 35th Avenue s.w. at this location for people who are visually impaired.
Readers may recall that for some years the West Seattle Herald offices were located there at 3500 s.w. Alaska Street. They moved to a consolidated production and management office in Burien a few years ago, located at 14006 1st Ave. South Suite B, 98168.
