South Lake Washington Roadway Improvements (Garden Avenue North Widening)

Project Manager – James Wilhoit 

Emerging_wu20ThmbDescription – This project improved the capacity and safety of Logan Ave N / S Lake Washington Blvd intersection in order to improve mobility of our residents, businesses / employees and  visitors.  Garden Ave N was widened between N 10th Street and Logan Ave N to allow for wider and safer traffic lanes in the four-lane section of this street.  Capacity was improved by widening of Logan Ave N and S Lake Washington Blvd to replace the single left-turn lanes on the west and north approaches with dual left-turn lanes.  The sign / signal bridge spanning the intersection was removed and new signals were installed.  Public art will be erected at the SW corner of the intersection.

Construction included additional sidewalks, bike lanes, and street lighting improvements.  

Emerging by Hai Ying WuPublic Art Component of the Garden Avenue North Widening Project - The Renton Municipal Arts Commission has removed the sculpture ‘Emerging’ by Hai Ying Wu from its previous site in Carco Park. After undergoing repairs and refurbishing it will be re-erected at a new location on the SW corner of this intersection. This sculpture was created for the City’s Centennial celebration. The new location will provide increased visibility of the artwork and be better connected to the natural features of nearby Lake Washington and Coulon Park.
