Current Status:

Design Start:  July 2015

Construction Start:  June 2017

Construction Completion: Fall 2017

 

Construction is nearly complete. New sidewalk on the west side of 62nd Ave NE has been installed along with traffic circles at the intersections of NE 182nd Street, NE 184th Street and NE 185th Street. Some minor work and landscaping remain to be completed.

 

Background:

The project is located on a local road that accesses highway 522. The street is posted for 25 MPH, but the 85th percentile speed is about 32 MPH. Average Daily Traffic (ADT) on this roadway is over 1,000 vehicles per day. This project is designed to enhance pedestrian safety and mobility along the 62nd Avenue NE Corridor, where a pedestrian was struck and killed by a vehicle in 2013.

 

Project Description:

This project will enhance mobility and safety by installing a sidewalk (on the east side of the street) and up to three traffic circles on 62nd Avenue NE from SR 522 to NE 187th Street. Sharrows (striping identifying shared use lanes between bicycles and vehicles) will be added to the roadway within project limits for an improved bicycle facility.

 

Funding:

The City has received a Highway Safety Improvement Program grant in the amount of $813,200 for this project. Total project cost for this project is estimated to be $828,000.
