Construction crews to continue road projects around Terrace this week


54th Avenue construction, Apr. 18 005Weather forecasts are for warm, sunny conditions this week, just what road construction crews are hoping for as a number of projects continue around Mountlake Terrace.

With the chip sealing of Cedar Way/44th Avenue West between 232nd Street Southwest and the King-Snohomish County line at 244th Street Southwest complete, crews are expected to apply the new lane configuration markings this week –Sept. 9-14. When finished, the roadway will have one lane of traffic in each direction separated by a center left turn lane; each direction will also include curbside lanes designated exclusively for bicycles.

Similar lane changes are in store for the 5500 block of 236th Street Southwest, as bicycle lanes and a center left turn lane will be added to the roadway, matching the lane configuration that is there now east to 48th Avenue West.

The $5.356 million WSDOT project to repave I-5 and its ramps and overpasses between 52nd Avenue West and the King-Snohomish County line continues this week; drivers will need to adhere to detours and traffic controls effecting the 220th and 236th Street freeway ramps and overpasses during the overnight hours of 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Other projects around Mountlake Terrace that continue this week include a gas main extension beneath 56th Avenue West — Puget Sound Energy crews will be working between 230th and 244th Streets Southwest, and lane closures may be in effect – and the McAleer Creek culvert and bridge replacement on the grounds of the Nile Golf Course
