Construction is now ongoing on a walkway that will provide a new curb, gutter and 300 feet of sidewalk on the south side of 226th Street SW from 105th Place West to Edmonds Way (SR 104).
And in addition to new pedestrian signals and buttons, the work will include erosion control and minor widening of a portion of the existing road.
The project will also remove and replace existing curb ramps at all four corners of the intersection of 226th Street SW with Edmonds Way as specified in the plans to comply with Americans With Disabilities requirements.
The project is intended to provide safer access to Sherwood Elementary School and residential neighborhoods. The street is also an entrance to the town of Woodway.
The 226th Street SW improvements, partly funded by the Washington State Department of Transportation, is part of the Edmonds’ six-year transportation improvement program. It identifies partially funded and unfunded projects that are planned or needed over the next six years.
