Alley Progress

Work begins in May to resurface two Pioneer Square alleys. Pioneer Square’s alleys are more walkable and inviting due to the collective efforts of art and lighting installation, resident stewardship, businesses opening and building façade improvements. In 2013, the International Sustainability Institute received a Department of Neighborhoods matching grant to redesign two alleys with a surface design acceptable to the Preservation Board, Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT), utilities, residents and businesses. Before completing the design, ISI partnered with the Alliance and Seattle Chinatown International District Public Development Authority (SCIDPDA) to secure funding for three alleys – Canton Alley, Pioneer Passage […]

Curb Ramps on Yesler!

ADA Improvements Continue We’re happy to report on two new curb ramps on Yesler Way between 2nd and 3rd Avenues, right outside the Pioneer Square Link station entrance. For the longest time, there has been a mid-block crosswalk at this location, with no accessible way to get across for people with disabilities. What’s even more exciting is that these curb ramps were installed with cast iron truncated domes (those pads with all the little bumps before you enter the street). The cast iron meets ADA requirements and fits in with the look and feel of Pioneer Square. This work was […]

Pioneer Passage Lights

Pioneer Passage Lights

With all the lights up during the holiday season, you may have missed the new permanent lights in Pioneer Passage, the alley located just south of Yesler between First & Occidental.  Overhead LED lights now crisscross the alley from building to building. Planning for the project started back in 2013. For several years residents and businesses have been bringing life to this alley. Before people got involved and started keeping an eye on the alley, illegal dumping was often a common occurrence. Now garbage pick-up is more under control. Planter baskets and art line the alley buildings. Last year Casco Antiguo […]
