County wants public ideas about its road/street safety projects

Washington County’s Urban Road Maintenance District Advisory Committee is looking for public comments on its top road safety improvement candidates considered for funding next fiscal year.

Comments on road and street safety projects are due by Feb. 13. After that, the committee will review the comments, select top candidates for funding and pass those recommendations on to commissioners.

Nearly two dozen road and street safety projects are being considered for funding. They include:

• A $266,000 project to construct about 650 feet of 5-foot-wide paved pathways along the north side of Farmington Road near 173rd Avenue, and from Kinnaman Road to 170th Avenue.

• A $559,000 project to fill gaps in sidewalks and pathways along 113th Avenue between Anderson and Rainmont streets. It includes constructing about 1,000 feet of 5-foot-wide paved pathways in the area.

• A $365,000 project to construct about 1,300 feet of 5-foot-wide paved pathways on the eastside of 90th Avenue from Stark Street to Leahy Road.

• A $421,000 project to fill gaps in sidewalks and pathways along Kinnaman Road between 209th and 198th avenues. That includes construction of 1,300 feet of 5-foot-wide paved pathways.

• A $709,000 project to construct about 1,800 feet of 5-foot-wide pathways along Bull Mountain Road between Grandview Lane and 133rd Avenue.
