South Beacon Light Rail Accessibility


Geographical, and topographical barriers limit pedestrian accessibility to the light rail
station in South Seattle for residents living between S Holden and S Cambridge St on Beacon
Avenue. This project explores ways of overcoming these barriers. The project includes a site
analysis of the impacted area, interviews with local residents about their travel habits,
observations of foot traffic through the neighborhood, and an assessment of potential design
solutions. The final report recommends the development of a new trail system that would
increase the ease of pedestrian, bicycle, and wheelchair access to the station, while also
providing a valuable new open-space amenity for the area.
