The Langley City Council approved the second reading of the city’s annual six-year Transportation Improvement Program at its regular monthly meeting on Monday night.

The plan includes projects to improve city roads from 2018-2023, including a $250,000 improvement of First Street from Wharf Street to Anthes Avenue. The project, funded by Washington State Department of Transportation grant monies, includes milling, road overlay, wider sidewalks, American Disabilities Act improvements, a plaza, bike racks and better crosswalks.

Another project set for 2018 is a $634,150 full depth reclamation and overlay of Saratoga Road. The city is applying for Small Cities Preservation Program money to fund the majority of the project; the city is committed to paying $31,750 for the improvements.

Other projects to be tackled down the road include a connecting trail from Edgecliff Drive to Sandy Point, improvements to Second Street, reestablishing the Middle Earth Trail behind Langley Middle School and a full depth reclamation and overlay of Sandy Point Road.

There are 19 projects in all outlined in the six-year plan.
