The City of Kirkland plans to begin construction in summer 2023 on a pedestrian and bicycle path along Northeast 85th Street that will connect Kirkland's downtown to its Rose Hill neighborhoods on the eastside of the freeway via the Northeast 80th Street pedestrian bridge.
The City will build the path along the south side of Northeast 85th Street, between Sixth Street and Northeast 114th Avenue Northeast.
Staff and consulting engineers are also designing the path to connect directly to Sound Transit's Bus Rapid Transit improvements at the Northeast 85th Street on-ramps onto Interstate 405.
