Walkways & Waterways Improvements

The Walkways & Waterways proposed bond measure is the result of the City's "Imagine Kenmore" public outreach initiative. This initiative began in the summer of 2015 and included a number of public meetings, online interactive methods, and other outreach to solicit public input on priorities for pedestrian and cyclist safety and park improvements. Through this community engagement process, Kenmore residents confirmed that sidewalks and bike lanes on major roads and connecting to the City's public waterfront are top priorities.

The City began the design of the new bridge in May 2015.  Design will take approximately 2 years as the City secures the necessary permits, right of way, and prepares the plans and specifications. Construction is expected to begin in Spring 2019, pending availability of funding.
