"Steep hill wears on your brakes, but close to grocery and gas"

236th begins at the junction of Albertson's, a 76 gas station and Redmond-Fall City Road. As you are turning into 236th you are facing an uphill drive (or ride as I've seen by intrepid cyclists and pedestrians). Heading downhill can be wearing on your brakes, as the speed limit is 35mph and there are often motorcycle police that patrol the area for speeders. It is not uncommon for drivers to be faced with a ticket on this road.

This is not a good road for children to be walking on or playing on. There are no sidewalks and the shoulders are minimal in places. The traffic is not too much, however drivers do not exercise the best caution here. There is no problem catching the bus to school as the buses stop at several points along this road. When buses are present motorists exercise patience and control.

There is a large faith-based organization on the left as you are heading uphill, which is the one of the two causes of the road widening some years ago. The other being a new community called Redmond Ridge which now connects 236th and Novelty Hill Road. The road is well maintained by the county. De-icer is applied at the appropriate times.

Albertson's has undergone a remodel and there is now a Starbucks inside. Mercury's coffee joined in on the opportunity and built a drive-thru coffee stand in the 76 parking lot which rivals the Starbucks.
