As part of the City of Kirkland’s goal of providing a connected and complete sidewalk system for pedestrian travel throughout the City limits, LDC completed a public works renovation project for pedestrian and connectivity improvements to a segment of the NE 52nd Street corridor. The project covered a distance of approximately 1,850 feet extending from 102nd Ave NE to 108th Ave NE. Connectivity improvements designed as part of this project included the installation of concrete pavement sidewalks, soldier pile walls for widening the north side of the road, storm drainage improvements, and channelization.

Going Above the Standard

The constrained nature of the work area along with the project’s location within a residential neighborhood provided unique project challenges. LDC’s crew took every possible step to mitigate as many adverse impacts on adjacent residents as possible and immediately relayed any concerns expressed by residents to the contractor. When inconsistencies were discovered within the plan sets, LDC’s office support worked very closely with the design crew, especially in the areas of the structural piles, to develop solutions for new locations that were congruent with design intent. LDC discovered a plan oversight that required a field design revision to one of the critical support structures, and then provided on-the-go field staking to keep the project on schedule.
