Highlands to Landing Pedestrian Connection Project
Project Manager - Keith Woolley, 425-430-7318
Project Description - I-405 is a physical barrier between the Renton Highlands and North Renton. This project provided pedestrian connectivity between the Highlands Urban Center (Renton Highlands) and the Downtown North Urban Center (The Landing/Coulon Park). This project was conceived by the Highlands Task Force Committee that included residents, businesses, and elected officials from the Renton Highlands.
The project improvements followed the north side of NE Park Drive with curb, gutter, and sidewalk separated by a planter strip where space allowed. To provide space for the sidewalk on the bridge crossing the railroad tracks, the north railing was removed and reconstructed.
Project Schedule - Construction was completed in late 2014. For information, call 425-430-7321.
Project Budget - The City was awarded a $240,000 Federal CMAQ grant for design of the new pedestrian connection and a $1.7 million Federal CMAQ grant for construction.
