Baseline Road (231st to Brookwood & 197th to Lisa)

PROJECT PAGES
Baseline Road is a heavily-used east/west arterial that carries approximately 20,000 cars a day. The existing roadway section between Brookwood and 231st varies between 2-4 travel lanes, has intermittent bike lanes mixed with varying shoulder widths and lacks continuous sidewalks. The existing section of roadway between 197th and Lisa includes three travel lanes, bike lanes, and a mix of sidewalks and asphalt pedestrian paths. Both roadway sections experience traffic delays, especially during commute times, due to the inconsistency with the travel lane configuration and increasing residential and commercial growth in the area.

This project will widen both sections of Baseline Road to five lanes (two travel lanes in each direction with a center turn lane) matching up to the existing roadway sections at the ends of both project limits.

Improvements includes:
  • Continuous sidewalks throughout the project (some existing sections of sidewalk will remain; all gaps will be connected)
  • Buffered bike lanes between Brookwood and 231st
  • Standard bike lanes will remain between 197th and Lisa
  • Street lighting
  • Storm drainage facilities
