The Seattle Department of Transporation is about to kick-off a small pedestrian safety project in the U-District.

Tomorrow, crews will begin installing curb bulbs, ramps and crosswalks at Roosevelt Way NE and NE 43rd Street. If you frequently walk through this intersection, you’ll need to know that the sidewalk will be closed and pedestrians detoured around the construction area.

Work will happen between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. daily for about two weeks.

SDOT says this is one of 50 crossing improvements they’ll install this year throughout the city.
