City accepts grant for Auburn Way North project

The Auburn Way North sidewalk improvement project is about improving the safety and efficiency of Auburn Way North.

To make it happen, the City intends to fill in missing sections of sidewalk, construct ADA improvements, build a rectangular rapid flashing beacon at the intersection with Auburn Avenue and install LED lighting.

The City Council on Tuesday authorized Mayor Nancy Backus to accept a $263,250 grant from the Washington State Transportation Improvement Board to finance design and construction of the project.

The grant requires a local funding match of 20 percent and there is funding in the 102 Arterial Street fund to meet the local funding match requirements of the grant.

City officials anticipate the work will start in the late summer of 2018.
