Construction was light this week due to the July 4th Holiday.  Next week work will pick up again with the start of the sanitary sewer construction in addition to other utility construction work.  Large equipment is needed to complete the deep trench work and there will not be enough room for traffic to get around so portions of SE 4th St will be closed to thru traffic (local access will be allowed for residents within the closure area). Below is an exhibit showing alternate routes to get around SE 4th St.

Here is a summary of what to expect during the road closure:

Sewer construction will begin just East of 218th Pl and will move East. Through July the road will be closed to thru traffic between the 218th Pl SE and 222nd Pl SE.  The construction crew will coordinate residents in the road closure and directly impacted by the construction work.  Once sewer installation progress to 222nd Pl, the road closure will be shifted to between 222nd Pl SE and 225th Pl SE.  The Sammamish Commons Park will remain open during construction.  The road closure is expected to last through August 18th.

Construction for underground utilities has begun. Workers are currently installing conduits to underground the overhead utility wires. Installation of the deep sanitary sewer will begin the week following Fourth of July.  Large equipment is needed to complete the deep trench work and there will not be enough room for traffic to get around so portions of SE 4th St will be closed to thru traffic (local access will be allowed for residents within the closure area).  Below is an exhibit showing alternate routes to get around SE 4th St.

The SE 4th Street landscape is changing.  Crews are clearing the "footprint" of the new roadway.  It will look significantly different.  The old sixty feet of road right-of-way currently seems narrow since the only hard surface is the twenty feet of pavement and only had room for cars.  The new road right-of-way will be approximately seventy feet wide and will have space for people, bicycles, and cars.

The roadway clearing is expected to run most of July.  Utility Trench installation will be starting in the 218th Ave SE and SE 4th St intersection soon after the clearing work begins.  Flaggers will be directing traffic through a shared lane during this work.

Below are two conceptual images of what SE 4th St will look like once complete. The upper image represents the commercial area in the Town Center.  The other represents the westerly portion of the project which has an urban residential quality. (The photo above was taken June 1, 2018.)

The SE 4th Street landscape is about to change.  Next week crews will begin clearing the "footprint" of the new roadway.  It will look significantly different.  The old sixty feet of road right-of-way currently seems narrow since the only hard surface is the twenty feet of pavement.  The new road right-of-way will be approximately seventy feet wide and the hard surface - sidewalk and pavement -  will cover the majority of the space.  

The roadway clearing is expected to run most of July.  Utility Trench installation will be starting in the 218th Ave SE and SE 4th St intersection soon after the clearing work begins.  Flaggers will be directing traffic through a shared lane during this work.
