City considers plans to reconstruct portion of Parmenter Street

Plans to resurface Parmenter Street north of University Avenue are being reviewed by city staff, according to a release.

The plans submitted by Mead and Hunt are to resurface Parmenter Street between University Avenue and the roundabout, officials said. The design includes a bike lane and driving lane in each direction, burying all overhead utilities along Parmenter Street and installing boarding pads at Metro Transit stops.

The west side of the road will tentatively not have on-street parking, but will get a 5-foot wide sidewalk and wider grass terrace with trees, according to the release. The east side of the road will still have on-street parking and portions of the existing 4-foot wide sidewalk will be repaired.
