Background:

Consistent with the City’s Sidewalk Program, the City applied for grants in 2016 to secure funding to build sidewalk improvements along the north side of NE 181st Street from 65th Avenue NE to 67th Avenue NE in the heart of downtown.  In 2017, the City was awarded a Washington State Transportation Improvement Board (TIB) Sidewalk Program grant to fund the project.  The project team is currently designing the sidewalk improvements.  An open house meeting will be held in the summer of 2018 to update the public on design progress.  Construction is planned for the spring of 2019.      

 

Project Description:

The purpose of this project is to provide a safe, comfortable pedestrian facility with downtown amenities along the north side of NE 181st Street between 65th Avenue NE and 67th Avenue NE.  The project includes the design and construction of curb & gutter, sidewalk, some planter strips, street trees, parallel parking stalls, curb ramps, street and pedestrian lighting, asphalt patching, driveways, storm drainage, utility relocation, and retaining walls.

In March 2018, City Council selected the preferred design concept.  The large sycamore tree across from the King County library will be preserved with the project.

 

Funding:

This project budget is $805,205 and is funded by the Washington State Transportation Improvement Board (TIB) and the City of Kenmore.

 

TIB funds: $535,132 (67%)

City funds: $270,073 (33%)
