RapidRide I Line Renton to Auburn

King County Metro

City of Renton, City of Kent, City of Auburn, Unincorporated King County

The I Line RapidRide expansion extends from downtown Renton, through Kent and Auburn, terminating at Auburn Station.  HBB supported the planning team on the corridor analysis, technical reports, preliminary design and final design for planning, urban design and irrigation along the corridor. We also assisted with community and business outreach through photo simulation renderings, project-specific infographics, and other presentation graphics. Final design includes planting treatments throughout the corridor, tree preservation, streetscape design and new sidewalks in select locations, and station layout design for King County Metro’s typical station features. The planting design is coordinated with each jurisdiction to enhance the transit corridor with a unified planting palette and street tree selections for a cohesive visual experience along the I Line route.
