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.
