First Hill Streetcar – Weekly Project Update

Feet First supports promotes and facilitates the incorporation of “walkability” into the built environment. During and after construction of capital projects it is crucial to support the usability of a system for people going by foot.

Feet First supports the design of the streetcar to accommodate a wide range of individual preferences, abilities and users; allowing accessibility to everyone.

During the design of any capital project accessibility for pedestrians should be maintained. Learn more about Feet First’s policy on accessibility during construction.
