Current Projects: Sidewalk project along SR410 will require lane closures Feb-May 2015

Sidewalk ProjectView information and updates on this and other projects on the Current Projects webpage:

Originally published in the Bonney Lake Reporter newsletter (January 2015):

We all clamor for, and like, road improvements – except during the construction period. However, you can’t have one without the other. The City of Bonney Lake will soon undertake a sidewalk project to complete the missing SR410 sidewalk link between Downtown and Midtown. This sidewalk section is a difficult one, as it will be constructed on the bridge section over Angeline Road, necessitating special considerations. The project will begin the first part of February and continue through the middle of May.

This last section of missing sidewalk next to SR410 will be built in the next four months. The sidewalk will be built on the North side of SR410 and will cross the bridge over Angeline Road. This will provide a safe haven for pedestrians and bicyclists to use as they travel between the Downtown and the Midtown areas of the City.

The cost of this contract is $1.8 million, with much of the cost provided by a Federal/State grant. The construction will also rebuild the north side of the bridge, add a sewer line, widen SR410 between the bridge and 192nd Ave, and will add bases for future street lights along this rather dark corridor.

During construction, one of the two West bound lanes will be closed both at night and during the regular weekday. At night, work will occur from 7 PM to 5 AM. During the day, lane closures will occur between 9 AM and 3 PM. Lane closures will not occur every day or night. As more details on actual lane closure dates become available, they will be advertised on an electric sign board on SR410 and on the City website.

Detour signs will be set up directing traffic to Sumner-Buckley Highway on days when lane closures are expected. Alternate routes that can be used during this period include Sumner-Buckley Highway/Veterans Memorial Drive, 214th-218th Avenue, and Rhodes Lake Road.

Thank you in advance for your patience as these improvements are made from February 2nd through May 13th!
