Celebrating 100 Years
As part of their centennial celebration, the City of Duvall chose Stephens Street as the site of several enhancements. These include the addition of commemorative elements that honor the City’s history and celebrate its future. The City chose Stephens Street because of its connection to the Snoqualmie River, linking Main Street to Depot Park, then to the beach in McCormick Park.
KPG teamed with the City’s Centennial Committee to identify key moments in the history of the City, which were then translated into unique identifiers. These include gateways and art sculptures located along the trail. Stephens Street is now an inviting street with two distinctive gateways, a wider shared-use promenade trail and three public art sculptures.
The large custom metal gateway arch at Main Street invites both pedestrian and vehicle traffic through to Depot Park, then a timber gateway invites trail users to McCormick Park. This timber gateway was a team affair; KPG designed the structure, City engineers milled the timbers, and the Contractor assisted with construction.
Three public art sculptures stand between the two gateways and celebrate three key time periods during the City’s history; its origin, mid-century life and future.
KPG provided full roadway and utility engineering, street illumination, landscape architecture, and private property restoration of Stephens Street. KPG also assisted the City with a restroom and ADA improvements in Depot Park.
