1.5 miles of new sidewalk and landscaping on the east side of Juanita Dr from 143rd St to NE 170th St
Buffered bicycle lanes in each direction
Bus stop improvements
Improved street lighting
A new storm drainage system
Minor traffic signal modifications
Construction is expected to last until fall 2022.
