Around the County
The city of Edmonds will take public comment on three planned “Safe Routes to School” grant-funded sidewalks to serve Sherwood Elementary and Madrona School at 6 p.m. June 4 in the gymnasium at Sherwood Elementary School, 22901 106th Ave. W.
The city is starting the design phase of each project, which aims to improve the safety of walking and biking routes to the schools.
Sidewalks are to be constructed on 15th Street SW from Edmonds Way to Eighth Avenue South; 238th Street SW from 104th Avenue West to 100th Avenue West; and 236th Street SW from Edmonds Way to Madrona School at 9300 236th St. SW. 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.
About $1.46 million in state and federal “Safe Routes to School” grants will help fund design and construction of the three projects.
