Update (Feb. 9) -- Construction will likely begin Feb. 13 on Third Avenue's 84-stall parking lot. The above image shows Thomco Construction's trucking route and its traffic control plan. That plan, approved by the City of Kirkland, restricts parking on the west side of Third Avenue.
The City of Kirkland is planning to complete Third Avenue’s 84-stall parking lot by summer 2017. Downtown employees will have permitted access to the lot from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. After 5 p.m., the lot will be open and free to the public.
A hearing examiner heard on May 12 Kirkland’s plans for its 84-stall parking lot, just south of City Hall on Third Avenue. The examiner will issue the final ruling on May 20. If approved, construction will likely begin this fall. Forty-six of the 84 stalls will be standard-sized. The remaining 38 stalls will be compact-sized. The lot will feature two five-foot-wide pedestrian paths, a five-foot-wide landscaped buffer along Third Avenue with 10-foot trees and two driveways—one on the southwestern corner of the property off Third Avenue; the other from the parking lot of the City of Kirkland’s Annex Building.
