New walkway for Madrona K-8 walkway
A new walkway for Madrona K-8 in Edmonds is one of several “Safe Routes to School” grant projects won by the city of Edmonds. These projects are intended to increase safety and accessibility for students walking or biking to area schools.
The Madrona project, awarded to Welwest Construction, will install sidewalk along the south side of 236th Street SW from Edmonds Way to the school, including about 180 feet of sidewalk on Edmonds School District property.
The $717,000 project will also reconstruct the existing pavement section on 236th, improve the stormwater collection system and upgrade the pedestrian facilities at the Edmonds Way/236th intersection.
The project costs are being funded by a federal grant, stormwater utility funds and the City Pavement Preservation program.
Madrona is scheduled to get a brand-new building in time for the 2018 school year.
