Walker Road (173rd to Schendel)


Walker Road is a heavily used east-west arterial roadway with varying travel lane sections (any where from two to five lanes) and intermittent bicycle and pedestrian facilities.  

Phase 1 of the Walker Road project will improve the roadway from 173rd Avenue to Schendel Avenue to five lanes (two travel lanes in each direction with a center turn lane) and will include continuous bicycle and pedestrian facilities. Storm drainage will be upgraded and additional street lighting will be installed.

This $5.5 million project is funded through phases 3c and 3d of the County's Major Streets Transportation Improvement Program (MSTIP). The total project cost includes the estimated cost of design, right-of-way and construction and is subject to change.
