DIGEST-winter-2017-smallKirkland's Capital Improvement Program continues to lay the groundwork for a safe, healthy and vibrant community. This year, the program's project engineers are managing a variety of projects. They include the replacement of a sewer and water main along Northeast 80th Street, the designs for a safer and more efficient 100th Avenue Northeast and Juanita Drive. These projects also include the paving of seven sections of Kirkland's busier streets, as well as the sealing of 15 lane-miles of neighborhood roads. This year, the Capital Improvement Program will design Kirkland's first bicycle and pedestrian greenway--along Northeast 75th Street.

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.

Capital Improvement Program
All of these projects are detailed in Kirkland's 2017 - 2022 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.
