Not Your Dad’s Aurora

Aurora before after

 
Think what you want about Aurora (SR 99)—in Shoreline we embrace our boulevard. When you enter Shoreline from either north or south, you’ll realize it’s not your dad’s Aurora. Rebuilding the vital north-south corridor was a community goal since the city incorporated in 1995. Over the past 20 years, we redesigned and redeveloped all three miles of Aurora for 21st Century Shoreliners to enjoy improved traffic flow for cars and transit; beautified streetscapes; safer bike and pedestrian pathways and crossings; access for individuals with disabilities; nighttime visibility; stormwater quality and management; and economic investment potential. As a result of these improvements, Shoreline has seen a 56 percent reduction in accidents with injuries, and we expect it will only get better! Oh yeah, we also won numerous national, state, and regional awards for the project to add to our growing trophy case.
