158th Avenue (Walker to Merlo Station)
158th Avenue is a heavily used north/south arterial that provides access between rapidly expanding residential and commercial areas. The road has experienced an increase in traffic over the years, which is anticipated to continue to grow.
This project widened 158th Avenue between Walker Road to the Merlo Road MAX station to five travel lanes (two lanes in each direction with a center lane).
Additional improvements will include consistent bicycle and pedestrian facilities, street lighting, landscaping, and storm drainage upgrades.
The $8.1 million project is funded through the County's Major Streets Transportation Improvement Program (MSTIP). Cost includes the estimated cost of design, right-of-way, and construction and is subject to change.
