UPDATES & INFORMATION
Update (Aug. 25, 2017) --
Kirkland’s Northeast 52nd Street sidewalk contractor will close for one week a 200-foot section of Northeast 52nd Street.
The closure allows Kamins Construction to build the nine-foot soldier pile wall that will prevent the north slope from eroding.
Kamins will close Northeast 52nd Street daily, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Aug. 28 through Sept. 1. The street will remain open after work hours. The contractor will ensure access to emergency vehicles. All other traffic will follow the established detour.

or Anneke Davis, Project Engineer, (425) 587-3828; email@example.com.
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 began the project in July and 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.
