Intersection construction is still on track for next year
Progress has been delayed a bit, but drivers heading from Buckley to Bonney Lake can still expect to see major road improvements next year.
Advertisement for bids to widen state Route 410 has been delayed until Nov. 2, according to the city of Bonney Lake.
Originally, the advertisement was scheduled for February 2009, but environmental issues delayed it to Aug. 24.
“Depending on weather, not much construction may occur until the spring of 2010,” Grigsby said. “However, the utility companies will probably be out doing their relocation work during 2009.”
Grigsby said the original project cost was estimated at $20 million including design, right of way acquisition, environmental protection and construction.
The project has been under planning and design since 2005.
The 1.49‑mile project will add one lane in each direction of SR 410 with a raised median separating the eastbound and westbound traffic between 214th and 234th avenues.
The existing split intersection of 233rd Avenue East and 234th Avenue East will be realigned, creating a four-leg “signalized” intersection.
Street lights will be provided continuously from 214th to 234th.
According to Grigsby, curbs and gutters will be installed on both sides of the highway and around the landscaped median.
New driveway entrances will be made for each property owner.
