Stephen Fesler reports: "On Tuesday, the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) unveiled its five-year pedestrian implementation plan spanning 2018 through 2022." The implementation plan moves forward with the city's Pedestrian Master Plan, which Planetizen covered in March 2017.

"The plan provides key background information about long-term objectives, assumed costs for pedestrian improvement types, recently completed projects, and projects to be constructed within the next five years," adds Fesler.

The pedestrian improvements listed in the plan are funded with $91 million from the Move Seattle levy, and adding urgency to the projects is a July settlement in an Americans with Disabilities Act lawsuit. Fesler digs into the project list and the maps of where the plan will be implemented in the source article.
