We thought you’d like to see the progress of Skyway’s newest sidewalks. They’re being built along Renton Avenue South and 78th Avenue South. Construction started in February and will finish in April. The existing bike lane will also get new striping.
The map below shows you exactly where the construction is taking place.
Expect some lane closures. For one block on 78th Avenue South, the contractor may limit travel to northbound traffic only. Riders of Metro Route 106 who use the bus stop near Skyway Park Bowl will use a temporary stop 300 feet farther north (toward 68th Avenue South).
This construction is the second part of a two-phase project to improve road safety. The first phase of new sidewalks was completed in 2013 and included a new “Welcome to Skyway” sign.
