UPDATES & INFORMATION
Update (July 14, 2017) --
Kamins Construction is planning on July 19 to begin work on the Northeast 52nd Street sidewalk.
During these first days of construction, the contractor will establish the work zone between Lake Washington Boulevard and 108th Avenue Northeast. Kamins crews will be working from east to west, starting at 108th Avenue Northeast and ending at Lake Washington Boulevard.
The project will create a continuous walkway, extending from Lake Washington Boulevard to 108th Avenue Northeast. It will establish a 12-foot, westbound lane for both cycling and driving and a five-foot eastbound bicycle lane.
Kamins Construction is planning to complete the project by October 2017. To achieve this, its crews will be working 10 hours a day, between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday. Kamins' crews will be working some Fridays, as well.
The sidewalk and bike lane provide more transportation choices to common destinations, such as Emerson High School and Northwest University along one of Kirkland's important east-to-west corridors.
The City of Kirkland earned a $1,068,600 Washington State Department of Commerce grant for the design and construction of sidewalk and bicycle facilities along Northeast 52nd Street, between Lake Washington Boulevard and 108th Avenue Northeast. The sidewalk and bike facilities will provide access to the Cross Kirkland Corridor from both Lake Washington Boulevard and 108th Avenue Northeast.
