The City of Kenmore has selected a contractor to begin improvements to the Tolt Pipeline Trail located within the NE 185th Street right-of-way between 68th Avenue NE and 73rd Avenue NE.

The project includes the paving of a 10-foot wide asphalt trail, which will require closing access to the trail during construction.

The trail closure is anticipated to begin today, March 29, and will extend through the entirety of April. Weather permitting, the city intends to have the trail completed and reopened by the beginning of May.

Alternative walking routes are available during the closure; one option for an alternative route can be made along NE 182nd St.

For more information about the project, visit www.kenmorewa.gov/MajorProjects. Or contact Zack Richardson, civil engineer, at zrichardson@kenmorewa.gov, or 425-398-8900.

The improvements are part of the city’s efforts to build a new pedestrian and bicycle trail that will better connect Kenmore’s downtown core with residential neighborhoods. The city’s vision includes creating more opportunities for pedestrians and cyclists to get around town on their own dedicated paths and reducing the number of conflict points with motorists.
