Project Overview

The Swift Boulevard Improvements project is a key component of the City’s Swift Corridor strategy aimed at continuing the transformation of downtown Richland into a vibrant, active center of City life. 

The street improvements project will add bicycle lanes, on-street parking in a few places, landscaping, and enhanced pedestrian treatments.  An engineering graphic of the new street features can be seen below.  In addition to the enhancement features, the project will completely reconstruct the pavement surface to extend its service life and ride quality, and will upgrade the traffic signals to bring them to current standards.  The project limits are between Stevens Drive and Jadwin Avenue.
