The Bonney Lake City Council approved the resolution to adopt the city’s six-year transportation improvement program for the years 2015 to 2020 at the June 24 meeting.
Prior to the approval, a public hearing was open to discuss the six-year plan but no speakers were present at the meeting.
City Administrator Don Morrison said the city is required to adopt a transportation plan every year.
In doing so, he added, the city is eligible for federal funding through the Puget Sound Regional Council.
“Very few of the projects on the list (at this time) are funded,” he said. “It is really just a big ‘wish list’ of what we would do if we had the money.”
However, Morrison said aside from some minor improvements there are a few projects that could realistically be done in the next two years.
Those projects include improvements to the intersection of state Route 410 and Veterans Memorial Drive, improvements to the 186th Ave corridor including sidewalks, storm water and some other things and various street overlay and chip sealing programs scheduled until 2020.
The six year improvement program is broken down into five categories.
The different categories are intersection improvements, roadway major improvements, road reconstruction, overlay, chip seal and sidewalk, transportation studies and trail projects.
According to the plan, the estimated total cost for all desired projects is $42,921,300.
The six year plan can be found online on the city’s website, in the packet agenda from the June 24 meeting.
