The city will hold an open house Nov. 22 for residents to view the proposed sidewalk designs for 116th Avenue Southeast from Southeast 88th to Southeast 84th streets.
The open house will be from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in Hazelwood Elementary School’s gym, 7100 116th Ave. S.E.
The City Council reviewed three design concepts for the project in August, and chose an option that calls for concrete sidewalks, curbs, gutters, driveway ramps and pedestrian ramps compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The design also calls for enhancements to storm water drainage, minor landscape improvements, retaining walls and a 12- to 15-foot driving lane. It will not have a bike lane, but the wide driving lanes — one to four feet wider than most — will give some room to bikers.
The council also considered cheaper and more expensive design options.
