Beginning the week of October 3rd, the division will be constructing a right turn pocket at the intersection of West Snoqualmie Valley Road and Woodinville-Duvall Road. The turn pocket and the addition of a new traffic signal will improve traffic flow and make it easier for motorists to make right-hand turns onto Woodinville-Duvall Road.
As part of this project, a stretch of West Snoqualmie Valley Road between Northeast 124th St. and Woodinville-Duvall Road will be closed from 7 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 9 through approximately 5 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 10.
During the weekend closure, motorists should use Northeast 124th St., SR-203, and Woodinville-Duvall Road as detour routes. This is the only closure planned as part of the intersection work.
Additional improvements in the coming months will include:
The current bridge is reaching the end of its useful life and will be replaced with a new steel tied arch bridge. The $10 million project is scheduled to begin early next spring and is expected to be subsantially complete in mid-October 2000.
The project will be placed on a fast track to minimize traffic disruptions associated with the closure of Northeast 124th Street.
