ARLINGTON — The city is asking for additional input on its Smokey Point Boulevard project.
The city posted an online survey last week and will host two in-person houses on Thursday and Friday.
The project will add roundabouts, sidewalks, bike lanes and bus access to a 2-mile stretch between 174th Place NE and 200th Street NE.
The city gathered feedback last winter on residents’ experiences on Smokey Point Boulevard and what changes they would like to see.
Preliminary designs were revealed at a City Council meeting this fall. The plan is to build a “neighborhood corridor” along Smokey Point as more housing pops up.
The goals are to improve mobility for drivers, transit users, pedestrians and bicyclists; increase safety for all users; improve bus access; and create a livable, walkable neighborhood.
Now, the city is seeking more feedback as it moves to the final design stages. The open houses will ask questions about lighting, landscape and street amenities.
Some City Council members raised concerns about the proposed bike path at a September meeting. Katy Shores, with the Public Works Department, said the city is working with several bike groups and specialists to review the bike path alignment.
Fill out a survey online at smokeypoint.participate.online. The survey will remain open through January 2023.
Or attend an in-person open house 7 to 8 p.m. Thursday at the Smokey Point Community Church, 17721 Smokey Point Boulevard; and 9:45 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. Friday at the Stilly Valley Center, 18308 Smokey Point Boulevard.
