Lakeview Trail discussed at meeting

People still have a chance to learn about the options and give their opinions on the Lakeview Trail project, which is a series of sidewalks, bike lanes and trails between the Interurban Trail and Mountlake Terrace Transit Center and Town Center.

The project is paid for mainly by three grants from the federal government for $2.5 million — or about 83 percent of the design and construction costs.

A preliminary design is expected to be presented at an open house this winter.

Check out copies of the exhibits and a PowerPoint presentation at www.cityofmlt.com; click on “Lakeview Trail Project Information” under “Most Requested Services.”

People can still send mailed comments that must be postmarked by Oct. 8. Comments may also be emailed, phoned in or hand delivered until Oct. 10.
