Snohomish County Public Works is constructing sidewalks and bike lanes along the north and south sides of 228th Street SE, between State Route 9 and 39th Avenue SE. Construction will continue until the end of 2012. Paving and striiping over the roadway will occur in 2013.
The 228th St SE project is part of a larger plan to improve opportunities for walking in the neighborhood and to Miner's Corner County Park that is planned for the southeast corner of 45th Avenue SE and 228th Street SE.
Sidewalks have already been completed along 57th Ave SE (2010), 49th Ave SE (2011), and 45th Ave SE (2012).
The projects are funded by King County and managed by Snohomish County as part of an agreement related to construction of the Brightwater Wastewater Treatment Plant. The agreement provides a total of $70 million for a variety of community assets that include traffic safety improvements, habitat mitigation, the Brightwater Community Resource Center, and parks in Snohomish County.
