On this tour, go across Lake Washington to Kirkland, the first city in Washington State to adopt a complete street ordinance. We’ll see the fruit of the city’s Active Transportation Plan with its new, ambitious, rails-to-trails project: the Cross Kirkland Corridor.
The Cross Kirkland Corridor trail connects people, parks, businesses, and schools in an active living environment. Constructed using quick-build materials, the 5.75-mile trail was opened in less than three years, at a cost of $3 million.
The tour will pass through Feriton Spur, a public-private partnership between the City of Kirkland, Google, and SRM Development that includes a paved trail, community event areas, and sports facilities. We’ll also discuss future plans for the Cross Kirkland Corridor, which include the possibility of future high-capacity transit.
At the end, we’ll arrive in downtown Kirkland where you will have the choice of returning back to Seattle via shuttle, or staying to enjoy Kirkland’s lakefront and charming downtown.
