Main Street Revitalization Project work in the intersection of 236th Street SW and 56th Avenue W is ongoing, but the full daytime intersection closure ends today, April 3. Beginning today, only 236th Street either west or east of 56th Avenue W will be closed during daytime hours; 56th Avenue will be open to both northbound and southbound traffic throughout the next several weekdays and into next week.
“There is a lot of work still to be done with the underground utilities,” stated Construction Inspector Tom Moehrle. “It’s really complicated, so lane closures are necessary to continue this work.” The good news is that access to businesses and residences in the area will improve. Traffic will continue to divert through the neighborhoods for the next several weekdays between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Some detours remain in effect for 236th Street SW traffic. Community Transit and King County Metro will continue to operate on detour routes to minimize delays.
“We ask for your continued patience as this is a major project with many moving parts,” added Public Works Director Eric LaFrance. “We appreciate the community’s support of our efforts to revitalize our downtown.”
