Current Status:

Design Start:  July 2015

Construction Start:  June 2017

Construction Completion: Fall 2017

 

Design is complete and construction will be starting soon on the 62nd Ave NE Corridor Project.  Work on this project will consist of new sidewalk along the east side of 62nd Ave NE between State Route 522 and 185th Street.  A planting strip will also be installed between the new sidewalk and the street.  Traffic circles will be installed at the intersections of 182nd St., 184th St., and 185th St.  We will also be providing modification to driveways/approaches to the properties adjacent to the work.  Construction hours are anticipated to be between 7am-5pm, Monday - Friday.

In preparation of the sidewalk construction, Puget Sound Energy (PSE) will be relocating their gas line to the west side of the street and relocating a couple utility poles near 184th St.  These utilities are conflicting with the City's project and relocation is necessary.  Utility relocation work will be starting end of April/early May and will be complete in June.  Relocations may result in some temporary service disruptions.  PSE will notify you if such disruptions occur.

 

Background:

The project is located on a local road that accesses highway 522. The street is posted for 25 MPH, but the 85th percentile speed is about 32 MPH. Average Daily traffic (ADT) on this roadway is over 1,000 vehicles per day. This project is designed to enhance pedestrian safety and mobility along the 62nd Avenue NE Corridor, where a pedestrian was struck and killed by a vehicle in 2013.

 

Project Description:

This project will enhance mobility and safety by installing a sidewalk (on the east side of the street) and up to three traffic circles on 62nd Avenue NE from SR 522 to NE 187th Street. Sharrows (striping identifying shared use lanes between bicycles and vehicles) will be added to the roadway within project limits for an improved bicycle facility.

 

Funding:

The City has received a Highway Safety Improvement Program grant in the amount of $813,200 for this project. Total project cost for this project is estimated to be $828,000.
