Railroad Avenue and Kirkland Way

RAILROAD-AVENUE-KIRKLAND-WAY-timeline RAILROAD-KIRKLAND-WAY-map The above schematic illustrates many of the improvements Trinity Construction will be implementing in May at Railroad Avenue's intersection with Kirkland Way.

WHAT: The City of Kirkland’s Neighborhood Safety Program is improving safety and sight-distance at Railroad Avenue’s intersection with Kirkland Way. The project is adding a left turn-lane from Railroad Avenue onto westbound Kirkland Way, as well as a left turn-lane from westbound Kirkland Way onto Railroad Avenue.

To create these turn-lanes, the City of Kirkland will create two new traffic islands at Railroad Avenue’s intersection with Kirkland Way—one painted, the other concrete. The project is also adding a double yellow stripe to Ninth Street and relocating its stop sign and stop bar.  

WHEN: Kirkland’s contractor expects to begin construction by May and to complete the project by June 2018. Trinity Construction’s crews will work 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Flaggers will be on Kirkland Way and Railroad Avenue to usher traffic through the construction zone.
Trinity Construction will ensure access for local residents, mail delivery, garbage pick-up and emergency vehicles.
