A MOTION approving the plan for construction of a pedestrian pathway on Issaquah Fall City road.
body
      WHEREAS, the county is responsible for providing road services to the citizens of unincorporated King County, and
      WHEREAS, the county maintains a prioritized list of safety projects, and
      WHEREAS, Ordinance 15975, the ordinance adopting the 2008 King County budget, contains a proviso requiring the transportation director's office to submit to the council for its review and approval, a plan to construct a pedestrian walkway on the Issaquah Fall-City Road from the Pacific Cascade Freshman Campus School to Klahanie SE/252nd Avenue SE, and
      WHEREAS, the executive has transmitted to the council with this motion, a plan for the pathway, developed collaboratively by the department of transportation's road services division and the Issaquah school district, and
      WHEREAS, the road services division has proposed to implement additional improvements during the summer of 2008 to be in effect prior to the start of the 2008-2009 school year, including installation of a real-time driver feedback electronic reader board powered by solar recharged batteries and installation of edge-line rumble strips along the outside marked edge of the westbound travel lane between 247th Place SE and Klahanie Drive SE, and
      WHEREAS, the county and the Issaquah school district agree that if a grant application to the Washington state Department of Transportation is unsuccessful, the $500,000 available for improvements shall be expended prior to September 1, 2009 on a scaled-down set of pedestrian pathway improvements in this corridor;
      NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT MOVED by the Council of King County:
      The plan to construct a pedestrian walkway from the Pacific Cascade Freshman Campus School to Klahanie SE/252nd Avenue SE., Attachment A to this motion, is hereby approved.
 
      The county council supports the road services division's plan to implement additional improvements during the summer of 2008.
