As we do several times throughout each year, SRTC is proposing another update to the 2017-2020 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). This one would add three new projects to the program and modifying two already in it.
The TIP identifies projects to be undertaken or constructed during the upcoming four years. It includes project names and descriptions, the jurisdiction sponsoring them, funding attached to each project, and where the funding came from (local, state or federal funds). The TIP is updated throughout the year as SRTC’s member jurisdictions have projects to add, change, or remove from the program; often as funding becomes available or projects move toward being construction-ready.
Details on the five projects affected by the amendment include:
- Millwood Interurban Trail- A new project that will build a non-motorized shared bike/pedestrian trail through Millwood from Vista Rd. to Trent Ave.
- Monroe Street Lane Reduction and Hardscape, Indiana Ave. to Chelan Ave.- The northern project limit was modified to be from Kiernan to 100 feet north of Chelan to split the projects into two phases. The total project cost was updated.
- Monroe Street Lane Reduction and Hardscape, Chelan Ave. to Kiernan Ave.- A new project was added to split this projects into two phases.
- Spokane Street Preservation, North- A new project to resurface and preserve six street segments over a two or three year period.
- WSDOT Eastern Region ADA Project, Pedestrian Ramp Upgrades- The total cost of this project to bring pedestrian ramps up to standard was reduced from $1,339,487 to $484,526.
