Project Manager – Keith Woolley, firstname.lastname@example.org, 425-430-7318
Description – The project is on
Main Avenue S and Bronson Way S, from S 3rd Street to Mill Avenue S. The objective of the project is to improve
downtown circulation, and to improve the business and pedestrian environment.
This project will convert Main Avenue S and Bronson Way S from
one-way to two-way operation. Changing
to two-way operations will improve access to businesses and reduce vehicle
speeds, which will benefit pedestrian safety, comfort, and mobility. The redesign of Main Avenue S will shorten
pedestrian crossing distances at intersections, add landscaping, and urban
design amenities. Traffic improvements
will include upgraded pedestrian ramps and crosswalks, street lighting and
traffic signal upgrades, and streetscape elements such as street trees. The combined improvements will result in a
sustainable, long term solution to the community’s transportation needs.
Schedule Update – The project has been awarded to Jansen, Inc. Construction
began February 6th. Construction
is anticipated to complete in summer 2017.
In the month of March:
- Installation of a water main and storm sewer in 2nd Street
- Installation of signal pole foundations
- Saw cutting
- Sewer repair
- Roadway/Curbs/Gutter in NE Corner.
- signal installation
Traffic Impacts: Southbound traffic on Main Avenue will continue to be reduced to one lane. S 2nd Street will be closed just east of Main Ave. S. from April 1 - July 1. Metro Buses that use that portion of S 2nd Street will be re-routed. Access to businesses will be maintained.
