Be prepared for some construction delays along Village Green Drive beginning July 8th, 2013 as workers pour concrete to repair sidewalks and curbs. Additional projects will begin later in the month.
Broken sidewalks and curbs were removed in June and the sidewalk sections were temporarily filled with crushed rock as a safety measure.
Approximately 100 Mill Creek sites are scheduled for various repairs this summer and fall, including a significant reconstruction of the sidewalk near the Mill Creek Country Club golf course at the intersection of Village Green Drive and County Club Drive.
According to Scott Smith, Mill Creek City Engineer, “The longest ongoing project in the Capital Facilities Plan is the concrete repair program to fix areas of broken curbs and sidewalks, as well as upgrade miscellaneous ADA (American Disability Act) ramps and bus stops… The total project cost will be approximately $235,000.”
We will keep you informed as the following upcoming construction projects begin:
- Citywide Overlay – The City will be partnering with Snohomish County to repave three main roadways in Mill Creek, specifically 35th Avenue SE, 148th Street SE and Mill Creek Boulevard / Village Green Drive between SR 527 and Fairwood Greens.
- Curb Ramp Upgrades – In accordance with Federal requirements, all curb ramps along the overlay routes must be upgraded to current ADA (American Disability Act) standards.
- Village Green Drive Sidewalk Reconstruction – The existing rock wall and sidewalk on the east side of Village Green Drive between 148th Street SE and 28th Drive SE will be rebuilt this summer in conjunction with the Curb Ramp Upgrade Project.
- Chip Seal Application – As part of the City’s ongoing Pavement Preservation Program, a continuation of the “urban” chip seal trial will be extended down 136th Street SE from Jackson High school to 27th Drive SE, around the loop to 28th Avenue SE and on 133rd Place SE.
- 164th Street Corridor Overlay – The City will be partnering with Snohomish County to repave 164th Street between I-5 and SR 527.
