11 Street/12 Street S.E. route improvements (9 Ave to 26 Ave S.E.)
Project update – December 4, 2020
Good news, Inglewood and Ramsay. Construction and landscaping work has been completed for this project.
Crews have finished the following work:
- Installed a new asphalt sidewalk and wheelchair ramps on the east side of 11 Street between 17 Avenue to 19 Avenue S.E.
- Added a pedestrian crossing across 12 street at 11 avenue SE with an overhead pedestrian flasher.
- Installed a new asphalt sidewalk and wheelchair ramps along the west side of 11 Street between 21 Avenue and 26 Avenue S.E.
- Added a new southbound bus pad on the west side of 11 Street just south of 23 Avenue S.E.
- Added a wheelchair ramp on the southwest corner of 10 Avenue and 12 Street S.E. This wheelchair ramp is smaller than typical to ensure that we can keep the nearby tree.
The work for the 11 St/12 St route improvements project is now complete. Thank you to the residents of Inglewood and Ramsay for your patience during construction over the last two months as we complete this work.
