Delays on big project on SR 410
September 27, 2010 · 4:13 PM
Motorists traveling state Route 410 toward Bonney Lake will soon notice plans to open additional highway lanes have hit a snag: bad weather.
The recent spate of rainy weather has pushed completion dates for the projects until later this fall at the earliest.
Originally, the widening of SR 410 to four lanes was supposed to be complete by Friday, but the rain has pushed that off until at least early December. Median islands and street lighting, however, are expected to be completed by the end of November.
Construction of the 234th Avenue alignment with 233rd Avenue also has also been delayed by the weather and there is no indication of when that project, which is set to include a new traffic light, will be completed.
In total, the $29 million, 1.49-mile project adds one lane in each direction of SR 410 from 234th Avenue to 214th Avenue with a raised median separating eastbound and westbound traffic.
The project also includes infrastructure improvements like stormwater treatment facilities, lighting and bus stop improvements.
