What part of Old Auburn Road is included in the current design?

The 2020 Plan outlined funding strategies and a phasing plan for the project which split the 1.8 mile corridor into two segments (or phases). Phase 1 would include the eastern portion beginning at the terminus of the existing Class1 (separated) multi-use trail near Gary Oak and will extend 0.75 miles to the west to Tiara Way. Phase 2 would extend the Phase 2 improvements from Tiara Way an additional 1 mile to the Sylvan Corners intersection of Old Auburn Road / Auburn Boulevard / Sylvan Road.

Phase 1 of the Project has received a Federal Active Transportation Grant to advance the study features through the Environmental and Final Design phases. The City plans to complete the design of Phase 1 by the end of 2025.
