On Jan. 25, the City of Kenmore will hold back-to-back open houses for the Juanita Drive Northeast and 68th Avenue Northeast Pedestrian & Bicycle Safety Improvement Projects.

The events will run from 5-8 p.m., with the Juanita Drive Northeast portion set for 5-6:30 p.m. and the 68th Avenue Northeast portion set for 6:30-8 p.m. The open houses will be held at Kenmore City Hall, 18120 68th Ave. N.E.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet the project teams and view preliminary design work completed to date.

According to a press release, these two projects make up the walkways component of the Kenmore’s Walkways & Waterways bond measure, which was passed in November 2016.

Planned project improvements include a sidewalk on one side of the street and bike lanes along Juanita Drive Northeast from the south city limits to Northeast 170th Street and along 68th Avenue Northeast from the north city limits to Northeast 185th Street.

Staff will be available to answer questions on both transportation projects throughout the evening. However, focus on each project will occur at the times noted above.

Parking is available on site at Kenmore City Hall in the surface parking lot and underground garage. Overflow parking is available on Northeast 181st Street between 68th Avenue Northeast and 73rd Avenue Northeast, east of City Hall.

A community open house focusing on the waterways projects in the bond measure will be scheduled in spring.
