Construction fencing has been installed along Sand Point Way, up parts of 40th Ave NE and along a large stretch of NE 45th Street depicting Northwest plant and animal life. Images were carved into wooden panels and then painted dark green to help the construction fence blend with the environment. Images on the fence include trees, squirrels, bees, hummingbirds, butterflies and flowers – all representing the many forms of life seen on the Seattle Children’s hospital campus.
