2015 in the Capital Improvement Program

Kirkland's residents have a new Park Lane, new surfaces on sections of seven arterials and a new Rose Hill Gateway, thanks to the 2015 Capital Improvement Program.

These are just three of the 20 or so projects Kirkland's Capital Improvement Program completed this year and three of the 82 projects its engineers are currently managing.

Those projects run the gamut, from upgrading Kirkland's traffic signals with Intelligent Transportation Technology to preparing the Forbes Creek bridge for earthquakes.

They include projects made possible by the Streets Voters passed the 2012 Street Levy, also called Proposition 1, Nov. 6, 2012.Levy, which voters approved in the Nov. 6, 2012 election. That levy is doubling Kirkland's ability to keep its roads in reparable conditions, while making walking and bicycling safer.

Capital Improvement Program
All of these projects are detailed in Kirkland's 2015 - 2020 Capital Improvement Program, which includes nearly 350 City Council-approved projects. 

All of these make Kirkland a better place to live, play and traverse. And they improve the City through four primary means: acquisition, maintenance, repair or construction.

Fewer than half of these projects, however, currently have the funding to make them happen. The rest--nearly 200 of them--are unfunded.
