Update (Nov. 10, 2016) --
Construction will likely begin spring 2017 on the Northeast 52nd Street bicycle and pedestrian connection to the Cross Kirkland Corridor. The project features a continuous sidewalk on the road’s north side, extending from Lake Washington Boulevard to 108th Avenue Northeast, as well as a 12-foot, westbound lane for both cycling and driving. On the road’s south side, the project will add an uphill bike lane for people who are riding their bikes east. Project engineers expect construction to continue throughout 2017.
WHAT: 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.
The sidewalk and bike lanes 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.
Design should be complete by summer 2016. Construction should begin by June 2017 and be complete by the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year.
