    No. 3 of the avenues, No. 1 in our hearts

    Third Avenue is about to go through ch-ch-ch-ch-changes.

    This year, the Seattle Department of Transportation will work with King County Metro, other city departments, and downtown partners to make improvements to Third Avenue. Check out what upgrades are headed our way.

    Extending the transit corridor

    The Third Avenue transit corridor that currently stretches from Yesler Way to Stewart Street will be extended three blocks north to Blanchard Street — which means no cars on these blocks between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m.

    Construction is scheduled to begin the summer of 2024.

    Bus stop improvements

    The Third Avenue S. + S. Main Street bus stop will receive new covered shelters, benches, rails to lean on, and real-time information signs.

    The sidewalk surrounding the stop will be widened and get two new trees, pedestrian-level lighting, an art installation, and new ADA-accessible curb ramps on the west side of Third Avenue S. Bonus: A section of the street near the area will also be repaved.

    My baseball game meal of choice, you ask? Typically, I’ll eat before or after games (yes, I’m the spoilsport who hates spending ballpark prices), but I will indulge in a beer or two. Pro tip: T-Mobile Park also allows you to bring your own snacks inside the stadium.
