The Sidewalk & Crosswalk Program staff analyzed GIS data and inspected approximately 87 miles of sidewalks and 833 curb ramps in 2015. Projects are evaluated for inclusion in the long-term program and prioritized based on the vision and goals of the Imagine Bothell... Comprehensive Plan and this criteria:
Missing sidewalk and curb ramps
Proximity of low income housing
Proximity of public services
Proximity to School zone
The current priority list includes approximately 2180 projects. The list is reviewed annually and adjusted as conditions change. Installing sidewalks costs about $300 to $1,000 per linear foot depending on whether storm drainage, curb/gutter, and availability of right-of-way must be considered.
