Details Of Work Going On In Front Of Hospital's Hartmann Building Across Sand Point Way

Area in front of Hartmann Building

The area in front of the Hartmann Building, where Sand Point Pediatrics is located, on Sand Point Way, directly across the street from Wells Fargo Bank is undergoing an extreme makeover.

Here is information posted on the Hospital Construction site:

Extreme Makeover: Hartmann Building Frontage Edition is rolling.

The first round of improvements are being made along this stretch of Sand Point Way NE as part of our Livable Streets Initiative.

The hardscape portion of the project – a new sidewalk, curbs, gutters, drive aprons and rock wall – should be complete by the second week of September.

Look for landscaping work to start the first week of September. This includes prepping the soil, installing sprinklers and planting – or in many cases replanting – trees, shrubs and other vegetation. Some of the plants were salvaged from the Hartmann frontage before the makeover began. Others were salvaged from the Laurelon Terrace site or propagated elsewhere on our campus.

We’re also excited to report Metro plans to build a new bus shelter along the Hartmann frontage.

Work will start later this year on a new traffic signal and redesigned intersection at 40th Avenue NE and Sand Point Way NE.

We’re also building a two-way cycle track – with separate paths for bikes and pedestrians – that will run alongside the hospital’s frontage with Sand Point Way NE.

All of this work involves intermittent sidewalk and lane closures.
