The play areas on Woodlawn Ave N and Carr Place N at the North Transfer Station are closed while contractors for Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) work on improvements to address Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements. Much of the public space including the fitness equipment will be closed for the duration of the construction and the work areas will be surrounded by temporary fencing. Work is expected to continue through December 2018.
Pavement at the basketball court will be changed to standard concrete. There will also be new handrails installed along some of the walkways, improving access for all users. SPU will try to open up individual areas (like the playground) as soon as they are fully completed. The work notice has more details on work hours and construction impacts.
