When practicality outweighs the aesthetic

The Seattle Department of Transportation is trying to figure out where new trees should be placed in medians along a stretch of Southwest Admiral Way to address sight-distance issues raised by the community.

The medians were replaced as part of a $4.6 million project that repaved Admiral Way between 41st Avenue Southwest and Southwest Olga Street (by Admiral Viewpoint Park) this past summer. City seeks trees that don’t hinder traffic.
