Downtown 186th Street Project Update
The City is currently undertaking a reconstruction of 186th Street from 90th to 88th Street, and then from 88th St to 188th in downtown Bonney Lake near the library. The reconstruction will include new street and curb, gutter, and sidewalk on one side.
The current schedule calls for utility work to continue through fall. In December they would install the curb, gutter, and sidewalk. Paving would take place in January. Funds for the project come primarily from mitigation and other fees paid by the new Renwood apartment development located behind the Library.

Fennel Creek Sewer Lift Station Project Update
A new sewer lift station is being constructed near the corner of 192nd and Sumner Buckley Highway to serve properties that will develop in that area, and eventually facilitate sewer service to the Cedarview, Fir View, Kelly Glade, and Swiss Park areas. The project includes running a force main up Veterans Memorial Drive to connect to the existing sewer mains near Locust Avenue.
The City anticipates little additional disruption to traffic along Veterans Memorial Drive/Sumner Buckley Hwy for the remainder of this project, which will consist of constructing the lift station itself.

Part of Myers Road to be Completely Closed to Through Traffic for Two Weeks
With the assistance of a state and federal highway grant, Myers Road will receive a new pavement overlay in the coming weeks. This will have the greatest impact from SR410 to 81st Street. When the road is closed during “working hours” it will be for either an eight hour or ten hour stretch. During this shut down drivers will have to drive down to the bottom of the hill and then take the off ramp–on ramp back up the hill to go east.
The contractor will work at reducing the inconvenience for the business users and the apartments along this stretch. The total contract time of 6 weeks anticipates this periodic shut down.
However, for a 14 day period, all of Myer’s Road will be closed 24-7 during the removal and replacement of the guardrail. For safety reasons and regulations, the road cannot be opened after work hours while the guardrail is being demolished or re-installed. There really is no cost effective way to remove the guardrail and reinstall it on one side and install the jersey barrier on the cut slope side to address the unraveling of the bank while traffic is trying to get through. So drivers will need to plan an alternate route. The City will post additional information on the City website as the project draws closer.
