Walkway Program – 2017-2022 TIP #20

Project Manager – James Wilhoit, 425-430-7319

Description – Providing safe and convenient non-motorized transportation facilities (in this context, sidewalks) is an integral part of a complete transportation network. Specific improvements will respond to the needs of school children, the aged population, persons with disabilities, and in turn, support increased use of transit.

This program provides funding for the design and construction of high-priority non-motorized transportation facilities for pedestrians. Projects will be identified and prioritized using criteria outlined in the Comprehensive Citywide Walkway Study (completed in 2009), Council direction and through coordination with the City of Renton Neighborhood Program.

Schedule – The Comprehensive Citywide Walkway Study has been revised and "Recognized School Walk Routes" were added to the evaluation criteria for project prioritization.  The Comprehensive Citywide Walkway Study is being used to select projects to move into design and construction. 

Currently planned projects are:
Burnett Avenue North, near the Renton Senior Activity Center, Taylor Avenue NW/Taylor Place NW at NW 4th Street, NE 24th Street (near Jones Avenue NE) and Lake Avenue South (from South 2nd Street to South Tobin Street)

Project budget – $1.5 million programmed through 2019.
