Project Description – 116th Avenue SE is a primary north-south arterial in the Benson Hill area and has two travel lanes and a left-turn pocket at the SE Petrovitsky Road intersection.  It connects residential neighbors to Cascade Village, Cascade and Benson Hill Elementary Schools, the post office, recreational activities, retail and restaurant services. 

The project will complete the missing link sidewalk to the existing sidewalks to improve the non-motorized safety and environment along the east side of 116th Avenue SE.  This will construct approximately 1,200 LF of curb, gutter, and sidewalk north of SE Petrovitsky Road intersection. The project will also include storm drainage improvements, a planter swale, HMA pavement construction, driveway grading, surface restoration, and pavement striping.

Project Schedule – The 116th Avenue SE Sidewalk Project began construction on October 19, 2016, with a total of 45 working days at the beginning to physically complete the project.  The Project was suspended for the SOOS Creek Emergency Water Main Replacement Project between mid-November to end of December.  The 116th Avenue SE Sidewalk project was resumed as of January 3. 2017.  UPDATE: This project is substantially completed as of 5/19/2017.  A list of minor items will need to be completed to achieve physical completion, which is anticipated to be in June 2017, prior to acceptance of the project.

Work Hours  Expect minor construction work from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Short-term daytime closures and reduced travel lanes on 116th Ave SE may occur between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Project Budget – The City was awarded a $707,000 Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) grant and a $111,000 Safe Routes to School Program grant for design and construction for this project.  The estimated total project cost is $818,000.
