January 9, 2016 by Cathy Tuttle For weeks now, a poorly managed building site and less than stellar City oversight has forced Roosevelt High School children to walk in traffic -- just a few feet away from last year's DUI death of Andres Hulslander. Seattle's Transformation Department fixed the problem using entirely upcycled, leftover, and on-site materials to create a five-foot walkway and 11-foot driving lane. People drive slower past the walkway, and starting Monday morning, our children now have a protected space to run for the bus.
Thanks Seattle Transformation Department!
