228th Avenue Overlay - SE 8th St To NE 8th St
This project will replace the top layer of pavement on 228th Avenue from SE 8th Street to NE 8th Street. The major items of work include effort to remove the top two inches of existing pavement, perform pavement repairs and then place a new layer of hot-mix-asphalt pavement and new pavement markings.
Senior Project Engineer
The project is almost complete. Crews are finishing up work on pavement markings, and vehicle detection at signalized intersections. This work should be completed by Friday, May 19.
** All construction is weather dependent and the construction contractor will monitor the situation in the event weather impacts delay progress. **

The following is a daily description of work activities. This order of work could be adjusted at any time to accommodate weather or unforeseen circumstances.
Time of Work
9:00 am to 3:30 pm: These are hours of work requiring lane closures for most days of work with significant impacts to traffic, additional hours of work may extend from 7am to 5pm.
There will be various work zones set up throughout the project. Flaggers and uniformed police officers will be stationed throughout the project to assist with traffic control. There will not be enough room for u-turns in the work zones so drivers wanting to turn around will need to travel to the next traffic signal outside of the work zone.
Intersection and Driveway Access
Most of the time, driveways and intersections will remain open. Depending on the location, flaggers may be stationed to assist with driveway access. There will be short duration closures when work is occurring at driveways or intersections. These closures are expected to last no longer than 15 minutes.
Bus routes are open during construction. However, there are times where bus stops in the work zones may need to be moved or closed due to proximity of the construction work.
The project is fully funded by a National Highway Performance Program federal grant. The cost for this project is approximately $1.8 million.
