Washington Way Complete Street Project
The City of Longview is on a mission to ensure our streets are safe, convenient, and accessible for everyone. A critical step in bringing this community vision to life is reimagining Washington Way—the main arterial street for the westside neighborhoods of Longview. With federal grant funding in the amount of $4,794,000 from the National Highway System Asset Management Program, this project aims to maximize the life expectancy of the roadway, improve active transportation options, increase safety and comfort, and reduce traffic incidents.
• Re-pave Washington Way from Larch Street to 34th Avenue
• Re-stripe the street with considerations for bicycles and on-street parking access
• Upgrade sidewalk ramps to meet the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
• Improve traffic signals and roadway reconfiguration at the intersection of 20th, Kessler, 30th, and 32nd
• Summer – Fall 2022: Gather public input and identify design alternatives
• Winter 2023: Gather public input on design options and select preferred design
• Summer 2023: Begin construction
The City of Longview is committed to understanding and balancing the needs of all community members. You can have a role in shaping the ultimate design.
Join in person for an open house event
