Residents can let the Kent City Council know what they think about traffic in the city during a public hearing about the draft 2011-2016 Transportation Improvement Program at 7 p.m. June 15 at City Hall, 220 Fourth Ave. S.
The hearing is part of the Council’s regular meeting.
State law requires each city to develop a local transportation improvement plan and to update that plan each year. City staff has listed 44 transportation projects in the plan at a cost of $622 million.
The top four projects include improvements to East Valley Highway, the widening of Willis Street at Fourth Avenue South, the extension of 72nd Avenue South from South 200th Street to South 196th and the extension of South 224th Street from 84th Avenue South to 104th Avenue South.
