Project status

Project Status: Construction


The proposed project seeks to provide two new protected bikeway connections on Grant/2nd Ave between 12th St and 1st Ave S, and on 1st Ave between 15th and Grant/2nd Ave in advance of potential corridor-wide projects including the proposed Whittier/Lyndale bikeway project (2021) and planned reconstruction of 1st Ave (2023-2024).


The goals of this project include:


Summer-Winter 2019: Preliminary Planning, Design and Engagement

Winter-Spring 2019/20: Detailed Engineering and Design

Summer 2020: Start of construction. The project is expected to be substantially complete by mid-October 2020.
