Walker Road (173rd to Murray)


Walker Road between 173rd Avenue and Murray Boulevard is a heavily used east-west arterial roadway with varying three to five lane sections and intermittent bicycle and pedestrian facilities.  

This project will improve this section of Walker Road to five lanes (two travel lanes in each direction with a center turn lane) with continuous bicycle and pedestrian facilities. Storm drainage will be upgraded and additional street lighting will be installed.
