Work will begin in late July to improve the frontage of the Hartmann Building along Sand Point Way NE. The month-long project includes building a new sidewalk, curbs and gutters, replacing existing landscaping, and constructing a new retaining wall. Flaggers will direct traffic when the work involves the Hartmann Building’s driveways. This is the first round of improvements we’re making along this stretch of Sand Point Way NE as part of our Livable Streets Initiative. Work will start later this year on a new traffic signal and redesigned intersection at 40th Ave. NE and Sand Point Way NE. The intersection will include a new Sand Point Way pedestrian crossing and improve access and safety in the area. The signal will also incorporate a demonstration of a video detection system that will lengthen the duration of the crossing signal if people are slow to clear the intersection and shorten the duration if they clear quickly – allowing traffic to move sooner. We’re also building a two-way cycle track with separate paths for bikes and pedestrians along our frontage with Sand Point Way NE.
