Capitol Hill Community Post | Starting Sept. 7: High Friction Surface Treatments along 24th Ave E

From the Seattle Department of Transportation

As part of Vision Zero, our crews will be adding High Friction Surface Treatments (HFST) at 3 locations along 24th Ave E to improve skid-resistance to the pavement. During this time, you may see crews “power washing” pavement and/or removing striping to ensure that these treatments adhere correctly and to complete work safely and efficiently.
