248th Avenue Improvement
The City has identified the need to improve the portion of 248th Avenue that runs from 95th Street to 103rd Street. The goal of this project is to create a better driving experience for motorists, as well as better recreational experiences for bicyclists and pedestrians.
The project scope may include improving the roadway; installing new pavement, curbs and gutters; and installing a new street lighting system. Gaps in the current bike path on the west side of 248th Avenue would be connected. Additionally, the City will investigate the possibility of pouring a new sidewalk on the east side of the roadway, from 95th Street to 103rd Street.
Construction is expected to begin in 2023 and last for approximately 12 months.
- Getting Involved
The public is invited to share feedback at a series of meetings and open houses taking place in 2019 and 2020. The first meeting took place on Nov. 7, 2019. About 100 people gathered to ask questions and share their thoughts and concerns about this stretch of roadway. Those who were unable to attend the meeting can provide feedback by contacting Ray Fano, project engineer, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The next meeting tentatively will take place in summer 2020.
