The City of Edmonds will be presenting the scope and schedules for the construction of three Safe Routes to School sidewalks serving Sherwood Elementary and Madrona School at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, June 4, in the Sherwood Elementary School gymnasium. The city is starting the design phase and is looking for public comment on each project.
These projects will build sidewalks on 15th Street Southwest from Edmonds Way to 8th Avenue South; 238th Street Southwest from 104th Avenue West to 100th Avenue West; and 236th Street Southwest from Edmonds Way to Madrona School. The goal is to improve the safety of pedestrian and bicycle access to area schools and to promote walking/biking as means of transportation. The city has also teamed with Cascade Bicycle Club and the Edmonds Bicycle Advisory Group to bring bicycle safety education classes into the two schools most impacted by the projects.
The city was successful in securing approximately $1,460,000 in state and federal “Safe Routes to School” grants to help fund design and construction of the three projects.
