Woodinville streets targeted for repaving

WOODINVILLE -- The City has awarded a $265,000 contract to Northshore Paving, Inc. of Bothell, for pavement improvements in seven areas of the City. The work is scheduled to begin Sept. 12 and is estimated to be complete by Oct. 1.
   The areas (below) were identified for asphalt overlay as a result of a pavement Management Evaluation of city roadways conducted in 1998.
   "This is the beginning of an annual overlay program for the city." Said public works director Mick Monken. "As funding becomes available, we will continue to implement improvements in future years."
   "With most road improvement projects, there are some inconveniences," cautioned Marie Stake, community services coordinator. Drivers should expect travel delays and are encouraged to find alternate routes. Vehicles must be removed from the residential street during the project construction time frame, particularly during the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. For vehicles found on the roadway within the paving area, crews will attempt to make contact at the closest residence to request that the vehicle be removed. However, it may be necessary to impound vehicles obstructing the overlay areas and the tow costs will be the responsibility of the vehicle owner.
   For project information, call Dan Beck, Public Works Department at (425) 489-2700, ext. 291.

   Residential areas
   NE 175th St. (between Whitney Park residential development and 164th Ave. Ne.)
