WHAT: The project aimed at improving safety for walking and bicycling along Kirkland’s north-to-south corridor of Lake Washington Boulevard, Lake Street, Market Street and 98th Avenue Northeast will begins fall 2017 and will be complete by spring 2018. The project will install rapid flashing beacons on Market Street at Waverly Way and Central Way. It will improve sidewalk access at several intersections, and create colored bike lanes along Lake Washington Boulevard, Lake Street, Market Street and 98th Avenue Northeast.
This grant-funded project enhances one of Kirkland's most important north-to-south walking and bicycling routes, connecting Juanita Village and Juanita Beach Park to the South Kirkland Park and Ride.
Design concludes by summer 2018. Construction begins by fall 2018 and concludes by spring 2019.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Kirkland's prospective contractor will work eight hours a day, Monday through Friday or 10 hours a day, during four business days. The contractor will backfill or cover any trenches it digs at the end of each work day. The streets will remain open at all times. However, the project will require some lane-closures.
