The 68th Ave NE Pedestrian and Bicycle Improvements project is one of several included in the City of Kenmore's Walkways and Waterways program, an improvement bond measure that was approved by Kenmore voters in 2016.
This project will include:
- Construction of 1.5 miles of new sidewalk on one side of 68th Ave NE from NE 182nd St to 61st Pl NE
- New bicycle lanes in each direction
- Upgraded street lighting
- A new storm drainage system
The 68th Ave NE Pedestrian and Bicycle Improvements project is expected to start in spring 2020 and finish at the end of 2021.
Pre-construction utility relocation work continues in the 68th Ave NE - NE 202nd St corridor. Utility relocations include Puget Sound Energy (PSE) Electric, PSE Gas, Comcast and Frontier. Periodic lane closures will be implemented as needed to safely conduct the work. Planned water and sanitary sewer relocations will be completed later, concurrently with the city’s construction contract through an interlocal agreement with Northshore Utility District.
The City is making final revisions to design documents and anticipates construction will begin in spring 2021.
