Lake Washington Loop Trail Project will construct Phase 3 of the Lake
Washington Loop Trail system. Phase
3 begins at the junction of Logan Avenue North and the Cedar River Trail (north
terminus of the Logan Avenue Bridge over the river), which is the south
endpoint of previously constructed Phase 2 (along the west side of Logan from N
6th Street). Phase 3 will construct a 12-foot wide combined
pedestrian/bicycle trail along Logan Avenue North, over the Cedar River, and
through the intersection of Airport Way and Logan Ave North. It will then
continue westward along Airport Way. Due to limitations in right-of-way along
Airport Way, the trail will be converted into a 9-foot cycle track within the
outside westbound travel lane. The cycle track will separate bicycle and
pedestrian traffic with pedestrians utilizing the existing sidewalk. Phase 3
will continue along the north side of Airport Way up to the intersection of
Airport Way and Rainier Avenue North. It will include a landscaped buffer separating the regional trail from the
travelled roadway along with pedestrian ramps per current ADA standards, new
pedestrian lighting, traffic signal adjustments, signage (including wayfinding)
and pavement markings. A future Phase 4 of the project will include the construction of a 12-foot wide combined pedestrian/bicycle trail from the intersection of Airport Way and Rainier Avenue North to the northern City Limits at the north entrance to Renton Municipal Airport.

2013 the City of Renton received a Federal Transportation Alternatives Program
(TAP) grant to fund design. This multi-year, multi-phase project is
estimated to cost $12.3 million including design, right-of-way acquisition, and
construction. The first $3.5 million of that total will be for the Phase 3 portion
along Airport Way from the Cedar River Bridge to the intersection (just east)
of Rainier Avenue North and Airport Way. An approximate breakdown of the Phase
3 project budget is as follows:
- Design: $600,000
- Right-of-Way: $700,000
- Construction: $2,200,000
will construction take place?
project is currently in the design phase. Anticipated Right of Way acquisition and construction of Phase 3
will begin in the summer/fall of 2017.
