Roadwork and Maintenance closures


Civic Center Project

Delta Ave between 5th St & 8th St is subject to intermittent one way traffic control and steel sheet in the roadway due to utility installation. 

State Avenue Widening Project - 100th to 104th Streets

Drivers can expect occasional alternating one-way traffic closures as underground utilities are being installed as the project evolves. Traffic will be able to get through in both directions.

The City’s contractor for this project is Strider Construction.

When this phase is complete next year, the State Avenue roadway between 100th Street NE and 104th Place NE will have five lanes instead of three along with curb, gutter and sidewalk and street lighting to improve traffic and pedestrian safety. Construction of the last remaining corridor from 104th Pl NE to 116th St NE is not yet funded.

1st Street Bypass

Scarsella Bros. will demolish and rebuild the NW corner of 1st Street and State Ave. During this time, pedestrians will be escorted around the work area due to the heavy construction activity.

Update for 1st Street bypass project (9/2/2020)

  • The segment between Alder and 47th will not be operational until late September. 
  • The new traffic signal is operational at the intersection of 1st Street and State Avenue.

Detour and traffic signs will be posted for the following work:

Paving of Columbia Avenue on 9/4. Access to Public Works will be open on Alder.

Decorative concrete crosswalk installation 9/8 - 9/18 - The intersection of 1st Street at State Avenue will have full closures of the east and west sides for this work.

The Project:

City council awarded the 1st Street Bypass construction contract on Monday, May 13, 2019 to Scarsella Bros., Inc., in the amount of $12,947,526.86. From Kent, WA, Scarsella is well qualified to build the new arterial, having built many similar projects.

The bypass project includes widening 1st Street from (2) lanes to (5) lanes, between State and Alder, and will extend 1st Street as a (2) lane bypass from Alder to 47th Avenue. The roadway improvements will include a shared-use path, illumination and traffic signal improvements. With completion of WSDOT’s interchange project at SR 529 in 2022, the bypass will provide important commuter access to I-5, and allow them to bypass congestion on 4th Street and the BNSF crossing. 

Due to construction on 47th Ave NE, commuters and residents are advised to avoid 47th Ave NE, south of 3rd Street at this time. The roadway is still open to 2-way traffic with one narrow lane in each direction. If use of 47th Ave cannot be avoided, please Give’m a Brake and move cautiously through the construction area. 

We appreciate your patience during this important project. We will do our best to minimize impacts to the community, and to build the City an exciting new roadway project. Please contact Steven Miller, Senior Project Manager at 360.363.8285 or with any questions or concerns.
