Exit133 is about Tacoma
A New Look for 17th & Broadway
We could soon be seing a different look for the way South 17th Street navigates the hill up from Pacific Avenue.
A resolution on next week's City Council agenda would authorize an agreement between the University of Washington Tacoma and the City to straighten out the intersection at the north end of the campus.
According to the agreement, UWT would contribute $1.25 million to the project, which would connect the existing short segment of 17th that runs between UWT and Tollefson Plaza to the rest of 17th, creating a straight shot up the hill from Pacific.
As it is now, 17th is interrupted by that little sloping lawn next to Twokoi (see map at left). The map included with the interagency agreement shows 17th running right through that slope, with a squared-off green space on the UWT corner of the new 17th and Broadway intersection.
