Today and for the next couple of days, the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will be doing restoration work on the sidewalk at Beacon Avenue South and South Forest Street, next to the Beacon Hill Library, where flashing lights have been installed in the crosswalk. (As far as we know, the flashing lights aren’t operating just yet.) In order to do the work, SDOT will close the curb lanes on both the north and south sides of the street. The sidewalk between South Forest and South McClellan streets will remain open during the work. The work is expected to be completed within two to three days.

I assumed this was part of the 15th Ave South Multimodal Improvements. Has anyone heard about a start date of this project, assuming it is still planned?
I tried an email and don’t believe I ever got a response.
Some work has been done but it seems as if they haven’t gotten too far yet. You can see lines spray-painted on 15th where changes will be made, and I think that they’ve started some actual changes north of the Beacon-15th intersection. It does appear that there has been some delay, doesn’t it?
I thought the crosswalk was supposed to be elevated as well as lit. What happened there?
I think that was a possible option for the one in front of the Red Apple, not the library one.
Seems this project isn’t related to the 15th Ave project. I emailed Brian Dougherty (SDOT project manager) about 2.5 weeks ago and he said 15th would be done within 2 weeks. Obviously some sort of delay. Aside from asphalt marking, haven’t seen anything done besides near DeLite & Red Apple.
