: The City of Kirkland begins construction in 2018 on what will be its first two neighborhood greenways in a city-wide network of them. The greenways are on South Rose Hill's Northeast 75th Street corridor and North Rose Hill's 128th Avenue Northeast corridor.
Greenways are transportation corridors where walking and bicycling are the primary modes of travel and driving is the alternative form.
Greenways enable people to ride bicycles or walk to destinations without having to share the busier streets with automobiles. This contributes to the City of Kirkland's vision for a multi-modal transportation network, designed to give residents more options for how they get around the city.
Design begins in early 2017 to ends late in 2017. Construction begins 2018.
