TAC members and King County <br />Staff were in general agreement with the projects <br />covered. <br />Robert Foxworthy (King County Parks) mentioned <br />that the connection between the Eastside Rail Cor- <br />ridor and the Lake to Sound Trail through Renton is <br />identified as a project in the PSRC Transportation <br />2040 Project List: <br />Project ID: 5585 <br />Title: ERC to L2S Connector <br />Description: Regional trail/bicycle/pedestrian <br />facility linking the Lake to Sound <br />Trail to the Eastside Rail Corridor <br />Trail through Renton <br />Location/Facility: BNSF rail corridor/Houser Way, <br />Renton <br />From: Lake to Sound Trail at Cedar River <br />Trail/I-405 <br />To: Eastside Rail Corridor Trail at <br />Lake Washington Blvd/Logan Ave <br />N <br />Start year: 2020 <br />Completion year: 2024 <br />Attendees were also in agreement with the con- <br />ceptual intersection plans. For the Burnett Avenue <br />- Houser Way intersection, the idea of locating the <br />two-way protected bike lanes on the north side of <br />Houser Way between Burnett Avenue and Main <br />Avenue was brought up as a way to make the Bur- <br />nett-Houser intersection crossings more rational. A <br />second alternative will be generated showing this <br />option.
