About the project

 URMD Madeline Street Sidewalk Project

Madeline Street is an urban neighborhood street near Aloha High School. Sidewalks are limited and there are gaps between sections.

The project includes a sidewalk on only one side of Madeline Street between 185 and 192nd avenues. The public is asked to comment on which side is preferable: North or south. From 185th Avenue west to 180th Avenue, the project will include a sidewalk on the north side of Madeline Street.

The design is expected to be completed in December, with construction starting in spring 2019. Overall project cost is estimated at $901,000.  Project page

Comparison of design options

Madeline Street, between 185th and 192nd avenues

 

Option 1 - sidewalk on the north side


Pros:

  • Majority of observed pedestrians walk on north side.
  • Fewer side-street crossings.
  • Same side of the street as planned sidewalk from 185th to 180th avenue.
  • Same side of the street as the existing crossing at 185th Avenue.

Cons:

  • At least four trees expected to be removed.
  • Potential for at least four temporary construction easements to reconnect driveways.
Option 2 - sidewalk on the south side


Pros:

  • Connects gap between existing sidewalks.
  • Flatter terrain.

Cons:

  • Potential for at least 2 temporary construction easements to reconnect driveways.
  • Higher cost due to drainage requirements.
