City of Renton Arterial Traffic Impacts

Week of February 27, 2017

Note:   All projects are weather permitting and unless otherwise noted streets will always remain open.  Please note Harrington Avenue NE, Sunset Lane NE and Glennwood Avenue NE will be closed until approximately July 31, 2017.

Inclement Weather Response Reminder:  The Public Works Department would like to remind residents to help us prevent local residential street flooding by monitoring catch basins near your home and keep them clear of leaves and other debris.  Street sweepers are dispatched daily to clean up debris along major arterials.

Please remember that during snow and ice events, the department sanders and snow plows are dispatched to keep major arterials drivable.  Visit our website at http://rentonwa.gov/living/default.aspx?id=21258 to view our snow route maps.  It is imperative that motorists do not park or abandon their vehicles within any portion of the traffic lanes.  Abandoned vehicles impair snow and ice removal and impact response of emergency vehicles.
