Sidewalk Improvements

Here you can see an aerial of almost the full scope of the project. The project is currently out to bid, and we plan to start construction this July. The cost estimate for the project is $1.4 to $1.6 million dollars. Funding for the project is provided by Sound Transit and is part of the station access improvement grant. Looking at the legend on the aerial you can see the various types of improvements that will be completed. The orange line is where we will be filling in a sidewalk gap. The green lines represent sidewalks that are broken, cracked, or in disrepair. The black lines represent sidewalks that have trip hazards. The blue circles represent driveway approaches that are either broken up and in disrepair or they do not meet ADA standards. The red ex’s represent curb ramps in street intersections that are broken or do not meet current ADA standards.


Maple Street & Alder Avenue

One unique intersection that will be reconstructed is the intersection of Maple Street and Alder Avenue. From the sketch shown you can see we will be installing curb bulbs. Curb bulbs improve safety at the crosswalks but shortening the distance a pedestrian has to cross the street. The curb bulbs also help to provide a better visual for drivers to see pedestrians getting ready to cross the street.


Rivergrove Area

One area that we will be replacing sidewalks outside of the Sound Transit area is in the Rivergrove Neighborhood at the South end of town. This picture shows a portion of the sidewalk replacement located on 143rd Avenue East.
