New Sidewalks Coming to 227th St SW

Construction of the 227th St SW Sidewalk Improvements project is expected to begin on January 19. The project will construct curb, gutter, sidewalk, landscaping and stormwater improvements on teh south side of 227th St SW between 56th Ave W and 58th Ave W.

The City received a Community Development Block Grant for about $172,000 to fund the construction. The Sidewalk Improvements map below, updated in 2012, shows that a sidewalk on 227th will provide a much needed missing link between 58th Ave W and 56th Ave W. There are currently no east-west sidewalks connecting the two streets between 230th St sW and 220th St SW. With Terrace Park serving students west of 56th and the popularity of the Recreation Pavilion and Terrace Creek Park, this new sidewalk will give many people a safer east-west route through the neighborhood.
