Update (Nov. 10, 2016) --
Project engineers are planning in spring 2017 to begin reconfiguring Sixth Street's intersection with Kirkland Way and to add a four-way traffic signal to it. Later on, Kirkland will add a four-way traffic signal at Sixth Street's intersection with Ninth Avenue.
The intersection project at Sixth Street and Kirkland Way will reconfigure and reconstruct the intersection with concrete, which will allow buses to more easily make left-hand turns. The concrete will sustain the heavier-than-normal loads that buses impose on the intersection.
Kirkland is pursuing these projects to prepare for the public's increasing use of Sixth Street. Along with the Cross Kirkland Corridor, these projects provide for all primary transportation modes: walking, bicycling, driving and riding transit.
