Road improvements up for public review

The Puget Sound Regional Council is asking for public comment on a drafted regional Transportation Improvement Plan that includes more than $4.5 million in projects for the Bonney Lake area.

“These projects were selected on their merits and support the region’s economic development and growth,” Bellevue Councilmember and Transportation Policy Board Chair Claudia Balduccisaid in a press release. “When Congress approved these funds earlier this year, their focus was on growing and sustaining jobs. These projects, large and small, will both put people to work and shore up the foundations of our economy for the future.”

There are three Bonney Lake-specific projects on the final list.

Coming in at $174,730 is the Angeline Road South overlay project to resurface Angeline from Panorama Boulevard to Rhodes Lake Road. Also on the list is thr Church Lake Road West overlay project, which will resurface Church Lake from Veterans Memorial Drive to Evergreen Drive at a cost of $161,755.

But the big ticket item for Bonney Lake is $4,228,120 for improvements to the intersection at state Route 410 and Veterans Memorial Drive.

A complete list of projects and more detailed information is available online at psrc.org. Many of the projects can also be viewed geographically on PSRC’s Web-based map. For more information, contact Kelly McGourty at 206-971-3601 or kmcgourty@psrc.org.

The public comment period is scheduled for Sept. 13 to Oct. 25. The PSRC’s Executive Board is scheduled to approve the final 2013-2016 Transportation Improvement Program on October 25.
