Urban Politics #242: Downtown Sidewalks & City Hall Art

December 3rd, 2007

I have heard from a number of citizens that construction downtown has resulted in a crazy patchwork of sidewalk closures which discourages walking if not making it dangerous because of the additional street crossings.

In response I have asked our Seattle Dept of Transportation, SDOT, to be more aggressive in keeping these downtown sidewalks open as much as possible and to look at best practices that other cities are using to see if we could adopt them here.
