The Oregonian reports that last night City Council unanimously approved a new Local Improvement District tax that will be used to improve NE 92nd Ave.
From their story:
"Northeast 92nd Avenue could become the not-so-secret back route to IKEA, after the council approved a controversial new tax district to upgrade the street.
...The $3.2 million project will improve paving on 92nd between the Columbia Slough and Alderwood Road, add bike lanes and sidewalks and upgrade a bridge over the slough."
Metro's Bike There! Map currently lists this section of the road as a regional, multi-use path.
The Oregonian says a group of businesses in the area spent months opposing the plan, which will charge them a total of $2.4 million for the improvements.Email This Post Possibly related posts
