The City of Edmonds is hosting a public meeting on Wednesday, June 18th, at 6 p.m. in the City of Edmonds Public Works Cafeteria (located at 7110 210th St. S.W.) regarding the following transportation projects:
• 76th Avenue and 212th Street Southwest Intersection Improvements
• 76th Avenue re-striping project from 220th Street Southwest to Olympic View Dr.

The City of Edmonds has completed 60 percent design plans for the 76th Avenue and 212th Street Intersection Improvements project. The project will reduce intersection delay with the addition of a left turn lane for the northbound and south-bound movements and a right turn lane for the northbound and westbound movements. Additional improvements include new and wider sidewalks, bike lanes, street lights, ADA compliant curb ramps, stormwater detention and water quality enhancements, water and sewer pipeline replacements, and conversion of overhead utilities to an underground system.

The City of Edmonds is in the planning stages of the 76th Ave re-striping project between 220th Street and Olympic View Drive. The purpose of the project is to create a transportation corridor that improves vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle safety and interconnects to the improvements at 76th Ave and 212th Street. The proposed striping changes between 220th Street and 208th Street will provide one through travel lane in each direction, add a center two-way left turn lane and install dedicated bicycle lanes. The city is also asking for comments on preliminary concepts to restripe 76th Avenue from 208th Street to Olympic View Drive to improve the corridor for vehicles and non-motorized users. The comments will be used in the future to develop preliminary re-striping options on 76th Ave north of 208th Street. Grant funding has been secured to complete both projects.

You are invited to participate in a public meeting to discuss your ideas and concerns regarding both projects. City staff and the consultant, David Evans & Associates, will be available to answer questions. A brief presentation (starting at 6:15 p.m.) will cover general improvements, recent progress and schedule, followed by an opportunity to ask specific project questions.
