Renton Ave Sidewalks Phase III

Project No.:  1129599
Project limits:  Renton Avenue S from 68th Avenue S to S 112th Street
Project type:  Safety
Thomas Bros. Map No.:  625H6

Project description

Construct a sidewalk on the west side of Renton Avenue S between 68th Avenue S and S 112th Street, a paved walking surface on the east side of Renton Avenue between 68th Avenue S and S 116th Place, and bicycle lanes on each side of Renton Avenue within the project area.

Why is King County doing this project?

This non-motorized project will improve the safety of pedestrians and other users of the Renton Avenue corridor and fills a gap in the sidewalk system in unincorporated King County. The project aligns with the County Executive's priorities of Equity and Social Justice and Regional Mobility. The existing walking surface is not compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and it varies from a grass or gravel shoulder to a 4 foot wide uneven, overgrown asphalt walkway to a 6 foot wide paved shoulder. In addition, the existing bicycle lanes are less than 5 feet wide. This road section is a walk route for the Lakeridge and Campbell Hill elementary schools with a total student population of 915 and a 1 mile walk radius. The project area is within an Equity and Social Justice community.
