Woodinville to work on W-D, 156th

  by Woodinville Weekly staff

   WOODINVILLE--Woodinville sent a one million dollar package of road projects to bid recently. The projects are expected to improve capacity on Woodinville-Duvall Road, give residents who live off of 152nd Ave. N.E. and 160th Ave. N.E. a protected turn lane into their neighborhood, and provide a safer environment for pedestrians on 156th Ave. N.E. Construction will begin in mid-July, according to Deborah Knight, public works assistant.

The projects include:

   "We're going to be as sensitive as possible to everyone's needs," Knight said. She said the city estimated project costs at $325,000 for 160th, and $300,000 apiece for 152nd and 156th. The city batched the projects together to save money on construction management, Knight said, and added that this was the Public Works departments' road program for the year. Bids will be opened June 4 with the council awarding a contract June 8.
