ARLINGTON – The city has been awarded a $600,000 grant to add sidewalks near the Arlington Boys & Girls Club, Quake and Evans Fields.

The state Transportation Improvement Board grant announced Friday will add mid-block crossings, sidewalks, storm drainage improvements, bike racks and public art near the club and fields at 18513 59th Ave. NE.

In addition to connecting the three recreation facilities, the sidewalks will link pedestrians and cyclists with the Airport Trail and 188th Street NE Trail. The 188th trail serves as a connector between the Airport Trail and Centennial Trail, city spokeswoman Kristin Banfield said.

TIB developed the new grant program to fund projects that accommodate all users, including pedestrians, transit users, cyclists, and motorists. Community Transit nominated Arlington to apply for the grant.

The project is expected to be constructed in 2020 and 2021, Banfield said.
