The purpose of this discussion is to inform the Council and Public of the overall status of the City’s Capital Project program managed by the Engineering Services Division and to present this quarter’s feature capital project, the F Street SE Non-Motorized Improvement Project - 4th Street SE to Auburn Way S (Project No. CP1416). This project will improve the pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure between Auburn's downtown core and the Les Gove Community Campus connecting residential neighborhoods located along the corridor with key services including the Auburn Senior Activity Center, the Les Gove Community Campus, Auburn King County Library, the Auburn Police Department and Municipal Court, Washington Elementary School and Auburn High School, Auburn City Hall, and Auburn Station. The improvements will include installing new bike lanes or shared-lane markings and way-finding signage and reconstructing F St SE between 4th St SE and Auburn Way S. It is anticipated this project will begin construction in the spring of 2020.
The Capital Project Group of Engineering Services is currently managing 36 projects, totaling approximately $49 million in total project costs. Of these projects, 18 are in the design phase and 18 are in the construction phase.
