Tukwila Village Street Improvements
The South 144th Streetscape is an important design element associated with the Tukwila Village community in downtown Tukwila. The existing street is a substandard corridor that connects an important residential area to a major north-south highway – Tukwila International Boulevard. Widening of the existing right-of-way allowed for 8-foot wide public sidewalks, a 5 ½ foot planting strip, parallel parking stalls, a bicycle lane, two travel lanes and a left turn pocket. Special paving applications will be used to visually and physically connect the north and south portions of this development across South 144th Street.
