Project Description

The project limits are from TIB funded Rainier Street to McClellan Street, west of the new Salish Elementary School. This project reconstructs the roadway and adds curbs, enhanced crosswalks, stormwater drainage and treatment, lighting, and intersection improvements. On the north side of Discovery Road, the project will provide sidewalk and curb ramps. The south side will include pedestrian and bicycle facilities as funded in part by a 2019-21 Pedestrian & Bicycle Safety Program Grant. The City received a Ped/Bike Grant and WSDOT STP funds to construct a sidewalk and separated bike facility on the south side of Discovery Road to improve non-motorized safety, but these funds do not address the failing roadway. This UAP grant presents a unique and timely opportunity to use these secured funds as a match and leverage project investments to add much needed roadway improvements to create a complete street project. The full road buildout provides a complete street capable of handling the vehicle, non-motorize, transit, and freight needs of the corridor. Ped/bike safety in the corridor is vital given the Salish Coast Elementary School, school bus traffic, and children who walk and bike to school. The project completes a ped/bike gap between sidewalk/cycletrack facilities on Rainier Street to the west and on Discovery Road to the east at Salish Coast Elementary. Roadway reconstruction also allows minor roadway realignment to avoid new right of way.
