[ARCHIVED] 56th/236th Intersection to Close

The Main Street Revitalization Project on 236th Street SW and 56th Avenue W is ready for final preparation and paving of the northern side of 236th Street SW. Due to the paving, which is weather dependent, the intersection of 236th Street SW and 56th Avenue W will be fully closed beginning Sunday morning, October 6. Traffic will be detoured onto 58th Avenue W. The intersection is expected to remain closed until the evening of Friday, October 11.

Businesses near this intersection will remain accessible throughout the closure. With the recent seasonal weather changes, both the October 6 start and October 11 end dates of the closure may shift earlier or later by one or more days. As weather conditions become more predictable closer to the start date, the city will provide additional information on any changes to this schedule.

Drivers should expect significant traffic delays during construction. Alternate travel routes are strongly advised.

Following this work, travel within the construction zone will generally return to normal until the top-most asphalt layer can be paved in warmer spring weather. Work by the city’s contractor and utility companies is expected to continue throughout the fall and winter along roadway shoulders and not impact traffic.

Weekly travel advisories on construction projects throughout the city are provided online at (traffic alerts) and are shared on social media. These updates are provided to keep the community informed about the type and location of traffic modifications that are in place.

For further information, contact Public Works Director Eric LaFrance at or (425) 744-6221.
