Sumner’s largest sidewalk fill-in and repair project begins this summer. Construction starts to fill in missing sidewalks, repair broken and cracked sidewalks and repair trip hazards.
Driveway approaches will also be fixed if they are broken up or do not meet ADA standards as well as intersection curb ramps that are broken or do not meet current ADA standards.
Costing approximately $1.4 million, Sound Transit is funding this project as part of their station access improvement grant. Normally, sidewalk repairs are the responsibility of property owners, but this funding provides us the unique opportunity to use outside dollars to improve the sidewalk grid through Sumner.
