E 64th Street Improvements

Phase 1 between McKinley Avenue and Pacific Avenue is complete. Phase 2 will improve East 64th Street from McKinley Avenue East to Portland Avenue and design is complete. One additional segment is planned, (Phase 3) Portland to the City limits, and will be completed in future years.


Phase 2 Updates

The design of Phase 2 extending from McKinley Avenue East to Portland Avenue is complete. Project improvements include replacing the road, adding bike lanes, replacing sidewalks and curb ramps with ramps meeting ADA standards, and upgrading the stormwater and illumination system. Landscaping and art will also be incorporated into the project. Environmental documentation for the project began in fourth quarter of 2022 and will be completed in 2023.  


Right of way acquisition began late fourth quarter 2022. Right of way is needed for temporary and permanents easements and is now 95% complete but final timelines are uncertain as a few negotiations have stalled. Power pole relocation is 95% complete. Transfer of lines to the new poles is ongoing and will last through fall of 2023 with three companies remaining. Puget Sound Energy (PSE) is designing a relocation of their gas main which should wrap in fall of 23 and construction to follow.

Phase 2 aerial line relocation work is underway extending into second and possible fourth quarter 2023. PSE will be relocating its gas main fourth quarter this year over most of the project area.
Construction of the roadway and underground utility improvements will follow and is expected to begin in early 2024.
