About the Project

Planned improvements to Canyon Road East - 72nd Street East to Pioneer Way East (CRP 5903) are intended to link road projects to the north and south for which we are currently designing and acquiring right of way. The project to the south is Canyon Road East - 84th Street East to 72nd Street East (CRP 5736), and the project to the north is Canyon Road East Northerly Extension - Pioneer Way East to 52nd Street East/62nd Avenue East (CRP 5643). The improvements currently planned for this project include:
