[ARCHIVED] 30-Minute Paving Delays on 236th Street SW, August 5 & 6

The Main Street Revitalization Project construction work on 236th Street SW and 56th Avenue W is ongoing and on schedule. The city’s contractor will start paving the south side of 236th Street SW beginning at about 2:00 a.m. on Monday, August 5 and is endeavoring to complete paving this same day. Paving work may extend into Tuesday, August 6. There may be 30-minute long delays during this work. During this period, all roadway users are strongly encouraged to use alternate routes. Flaggers will be on duty to help people through the construction zone. As construction progresses, the city will provide additional construction information that is up-to-date and reflects the contractor’s progress.

This work is necessary to return a paved driving surface for roadway users until the end of construction. The benefit of completing this work during the summer includes improving roadway safety since there is a reduced number of pedestrians when school is not in session and lessening overall traffic delays since traffic volumes are typically lower throughout the summer.

Throughout this construction, city staff have been listening to and working with residents on their concerns for traffic safety and mobility. The city encourages residents and visitors to ask construction and traffic control workers, on-site city inspectors, and engineering staff for help when walking, driving or parking within the construction work zone.

The city and its contractor are committed to ensuring safety and helping people feel comfortable within the work zone by providing direction or escorting them through an area they are uncomfortable with. Please flag one of them down and let them know how they can help.

Weekly travel advisories on all construction projects throughout the city are provided online at (traffic alerts). Main Street updates are shared on social media. These updates are provided to keep the community informed about the type of traffic modifications that are in place and where they are located.

Thanks to all residents and visitors for their patience and commitment to driving safely within the work zones. Please continue to drive slowly and cautiously through the work zones and detour routes so that we can maintain a safe and protected environment for all users within the public right-of-way.

For further information, contact Public Works Director Eric LaFrance at or (425) 744-6221.
