East Bird Street Improvements

Project Description

This project will complete a gap of standard width pavement and pedestrian facilities along E. Bird Street with other recent improvements including modifications along Spilman Ave to connect Entwistle Street, the King County Snoqualmie Valley Trail, Fred Hockert Park, and to facilitate access to the central business district and schools. The project scope coincides with improvements being made along Tolt Avenue in order to bring cohesion to the existing network of roadways and pedestrian facilities in Carnation. Stormwater run-off will be infiltrated in a drainage swale, providing water quality treatment, groundwater recharge, and eliminate ponding. The project will also provide one gravel parking lanes.
