Work on the Eastside Water Main and Storm Drain Improvements project in Mountlake Terrace reached a significant milepost as all the underground work of replacing water and storm drains is now finished; crews will begin work soon on the resurfacing of the roadways that were affected during the project.

A two-layer chip seal application will begin next week on Cedar Way between 232nd Street and the King-Snohomish County line at 244th Street Southwest, and a two-block stretch next to the Arbor Village development on 236th Street Southwest between 54th and 56th Avenues West. Following the chip seal, work crews will apply a fog seal and restripe the affected roadways the week of Aug. 19-23, weather permitting.

Portions of Cedar Way/44th Avenue West north of 232nd Street and 228th Street Southwest were also affected by the water and storm drain construction work; those roadways will be repaved and restriped after a bid process is completed. The City of Mountlake Terrace is expected to request for construction bids on the work later in August.

All of the roadways that will be resurfaced in this project will see new lane configurations, including center left-turn lanes and designated bicycle lanes, once the work is completed.
