Feature Capital Project:

F Street SE Non-Motorized Improvement Project (4th Street SE to Auburn Way S)

Project Description

The purpose of this project is to improve the pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure between Auburn's downtown core and the Les Gove Community Campus connecting residential neighborhoods located along the corridor with key services including the Auburn Senior Activity Center, the Les Gove Community Campus, Auburn King County Library, the Auburn Police Department and Municipal Court, Washington Elementary School and Auburn High School, Auburn City Hall, and Auburn Station.  The improvements will include installing new bike lanes or share-lane markings and way-finding signage on the streets shown in Figure A and reconstructing F St SE between 4th St SE and Auburn Way S.

F Street SE between 4th Street SE and Auburn Way S does not currently have bicycle facilities and has only intermittent sidewalks along both sides of the street.  These project improvements will complete the existing gap in the pedestrian and bicycle network by adding:

  • New mixed use path on the east side of the street that can be used by both bicycles and pedestrians
  • New sidewalk on the west side of the street
  • New curb and gutter
  • New landscaping
  • New pavement
  • New street lighting
  • Pedestrian crossing improvements (rectangular rapid flashing beacons and raised crosswalks)
  • Underground overhead utilities
  • Water/Sewer/Storm drainage Improvements
