New sidewalk coming to NE 130th Street

A grant has been awarded by the Washington State Department of Transportation to continue a sidewalk from Olympic Hills Elementary to the Lake City Library and Community Center.

The sidewalk is being built as part of the 'Safe Routes to School' program. Many community members have been asking for a continuous route between the school and library for decades.

The $440,000 project is still in the design stage and will be unveiled to the community in the fall. But it tentatively includes a curb, sidewalk and street trees. It will be on the south side from 25th Ave NE to 28th Ave NE.

The grant also provides funding for surveys of parents and students at the school, pedestrian safety classes and education, a basics of bicycling class and a Bike Rodeo.
