EDMONDS — A new sidewalk is going in on the south side of 236th Street west of Highway 104 to help create safer routes to Madrona K-8 School.
Construction will require a full closure of 236th Street, between Highway 104 and 92nd Avenue. The road closure is scheduled for Monday to Friday. Local residents will be allowed access, but access is expected to be difficult and delays are likely between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Funding comes from a $494,000 Safe Routes to School grant the city received in 2013.
It’s one of several projects in the city aimed at improving travel for those who walk or ride bikes to their destinations. A similar project in 2014 filled a sidewalk gap on 15th Street SW near Sherwood Elementary School.
