Snohomish County is preparing to work on a project to improve the intersection of 35th Avenue SE and 180th Street SE. Construction begins at the intersection on Thursday, August 2nd, and will continue into summer of 2013.
Work will begin on the northwest side of 180th Street SE, and will move east.
Single lane closures will be in effect Mondays through Fridays.
The closure and culvert replacement originally planned on 51st Avenue SE, east of the 35th/180th intersection, have been rescheduled to next year.
The following work description comes from a Snohomish County Public Works newsletter.
“Right-turn and left-turn lanes are planned for all approaches to the 35th Avenue SE/180th Street SE intersection, along with curbs, gutters and sidewalks. Storm drainage features will be constructed to handle water runoff from the road. The traffic signal will also be upgraded to include left-turn arrows.”
“Planter strips will be added on the north and south sides of 180th Street SE, from 32nd Avenue SE to 35th Avenue SE, and east of 35th near the intersection. When the project is complete, each approach to the intersection will have one left-turn lane, one right-turn lane and one through lane.”
