Open House - Downtown Street Improvement Projects

Learn about proposed Downtown Street Improvement Projects at an Open House on January 25

Four downtown streets are slated for improvements over the next several years. The City is seeking input on the design concepts proposed for these streets. Join us at an open house on Thursday, January 25, 2018 in the Council Chambers at City Hall. Drop by either around lunch time from 11:30 to 1:30 or come in the evening between 5:30 and 7 p.m.

We expect to begin work on segments of Legion Way and Franklin Street in 2019 or 2020. We expect to build improvements to Capitol Way and Washington Street after 2020. These projects were proposed as part of the Downtown Strategy to improve walkability, make bike connections, support transit operations, and maintain mobility for cars and freight.

At the open house you can see the design concepts for all four streets and tell us what you think. We will use this feedback to guide the next steps in the projects. If you can’t make the meeting, you can share your thoughts in an online survey, available at olympiawa.gov between January 25 and February 8.
