[ARCHIVED] Upcoming 56th Avenue Closure & Main Street Update

On Saturday, September 7 from 3:30 a.m. to approximately 3:00 p.m., the construction of the Atlas 236 development will close 56th Avenue W between 236th Street SW and 234th Street SW. Traffic will be detoured to 58th Avenue W during this period. This closure is necessary for a significant concrete pour using multiple concrete pumping trucks with regular concrete deliveries. The 236th Street SW roadway and 56th Avenue W will remain open during this closure with the traffic signal remaining operational.

The Main Street Revitalization Project work constructing sidewalks on the south side of 236th Street SW continues. Excavation and construction of retaining walls along the north side of the roadway continues. During weekday, daytime working hours, eastbound 236th Street SW will continue to be closed between 56th and 58th Avenues W, when brief lane shifts and lane closures with flagging may occur. Two-way travel throughout the construction area will be provided outside of daytime working hours. Flaggers will be on duty to help people through the construction zone.

Planning ahead, drivers can anticipate a significant closure of roadways for the Main Street project paving in early October. Specific plans and schedules are currently under development between city staff, the contractor, and WSDOT. Travelers should anticipate significant delays in this area and will be encouraged to minimize travel through the area at that time. The city will provide additional construction information that is up-to-date and reflects the contractor's progress as a detailed plan is finalized. Weekly travel advisories on all construction projects throughout the city are provided online at www.cityofmlt.com/208 (traffic alerts) and on the city's social media sites.

For further information, contact Public Works Director Eric LaFrance at elafrance@ci.mlt.wa.us or (425) 744-6221.
