13th Avenue Improvements: Rose to Rees

Project location map

Overview
Reconstruct 13th Avenue to minor arterial standards from Rose St. to Abadie St. and from Cherry St. to Rees Ave. including sidewalks, bike facilities, stormwater facilities, street lighting, traffic signals and railroad crossings. 

Why are we Building This Project?
The existing roadway is sub-standard width and in very poor condition over the southern portions.  The area served by this roadway is of mixed use with commercial, light industrial and low-income residential all with high growth and redevelopment potential.  The Port of Walla Walla is pursuing a warehouse improvement district on Dell Avenue with 13th as its gateway.  Additionally, the State Penitentiary expansion will increase traffic demand.  The intersections of Rose and 13th and Pine and 13th are awkward, level of service E for the minor approaches and do not provide adequate pedestrian crossing opportunity.  There are no pedestrian or bicycle facilities.  Street lights intermittent and lighting level is below arterial standards.
