Open house for 116th sidewalks rescheduled for January

City officials have rescheduled the open house for residents to view the proposed sidewalk designs for 116th Avenue Southeast to 6:30 p.m. Jan. 10 in Hazelwood Elementary School’s gym, 7100 116th Ave. S.E.
The open house had been scheduled for Nov. 22 at Hazelwood, but was canceled due to snow and ice.
Sidewalks are to be built on 116th Avenue Southeast from Southeast 88th to Southeast 84th streets.
The City Council reviewed three design concepts for the project in August, and chose an option that calls for concrete sidewalks, curbs, gutters, driveway ramps and pedestrian ramps compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The design also calls for enhancements to storm water drainage, minor landscape improvements, retaining walls and a 12- to 15-foot driving lane. It will not have a bike lane, but the wide driving lanes — one to four feet wider than most — will give some room to bikers.
The council also considered cheaper and more expensive design options.
If you would like to give input, but will be unable to attend the open house, contact Project Manager Kerry Sullivan at 649-4444, ext. 113, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
