212th Way SE (Snake Hill) Repair


The proposed 212th Way SE project is a repair and rehabilitation project to stabilize the road embankment.  The section requiring stabilization is approximately 2,800 feet in length starting near 212th Ave SE at the top of the hill and extending southwest.

The project includes a full reconstruction of the road through the embankment stabilization section - including two travel lanes, paved shoulders, curb and gutter, a storm water system.  The remaining 1,400 feet length between East Lake Sammamish Parkway and stabilization portion will not be reconstructed but will receive a new pavement surface and new guardrail.

Construction Update

Schedule Update (January 2018)- Construction efforts are progressing on the project.  The two main items of work consist of backfilling around the newly constructed storm water detention vault; and completing the retaining wall. Installation of the steel piles used for the retaining wall should wrap up in the last week of January.  The remaining effort to install the wall face and backfill to the roadway elevation will take place in February.  After that, and with better weather, the final effort to pave the roadway can occur. The roadway is scheduled to be open in late April of this year.

Footage of the work site was recorded in early October and can be viewed here.
