The above schematic illustrates many of the improvements Trinity Construction will be implementing in May at Railroad Avenue's intersection with Kirkland Way.
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.
