WHAT: The City of Kirkland plans to begin construction fall 2020 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.
WHY: 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.
WHEN: Construction begins fall 2020 to ends late in spring 2021.
TIMELINE: Design: October 2017 - July 2019; Construction: November 2020 - May 2021.
