Lewis County is upgrading a corridor that has long been considered dangerous for students. Borst Avenue connects Centralia High School and Centralia Middle School and has no sidewalks between the two.
SCJ is providing civil engineering and landscape architecture services for the project and is conducting public outreach to keep the community informed and involved in decision making.
The multidisciplinary team presented ideas for both one- and two-way streets and included options for parking, a shared path for pedestrians and bicycles, and a green strip to separate the pathway from the road.
In the end, a two-way street with a 10-foot shared pathway was chosen.
