Money from the $930 million Move Seattle levy, which voters approved in 2015, will pay for new sidewalks in neighborhoods throughout the city, ranging from Greenwood to Rainier Valley, as well as $2.25 million in updates on Rainier Avenue South.
City leaders announced the pedestrian-safety projects at Rainier Valley’s Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School, where workers plan new speed humps and curb ramps, as well as marked crosswalks at 44th Avenue South and South Willow Street. Those updates will cost about $130,000.
While campaigning for the Move Seattle measure, Murray said every public-school zone in the city would be improved during the nine-year levy, which costs the owner of a $450,000 home about $279 a year.
