WashCo looking to acquire right-of-way for Cedar Hills sidewalks
Washington County is looking to add sidewalks in northwest Cedar Hills, and part of that project requires the county to buy some land near the road.
Currently, portions of Southwest Meadow Drive and Downing Street do not have continuous sidewalks.
The Washington County Department of Land Use & Transportation is in the process of purchasing land in the right-of-way in front of homes abutting the space where new sidewalks will be added.
The entire project is meant to fill in sidewalk gaps along east side of Meadow Drive from Northwest Pioneer Road to Southwest Walker Road, plus along the south side of Southwest Downing Street from Meadow Drive to Murray Boulevard.
The projects are expected to cost a total of $2.73 million, to be paid for by a statewide transportation funding package passed in 2017, as well as funding from Washington County through state income tax revenue.
The online open house is available through Sunday, Nov. 20. More information on the project is available online. Comments can also be submitted on the county's project website.
