Work on a project to increase pedestrian safety, mobility and accessibility along sections of 12th Avenue South and 124th Street South started July 6.
A significant portion of the construction work was completed in early September. Remaining work resumed in mid-November after additional materials were procured. Work is expected to be completed by late November.
The project area is located near Pacific Lutheran University in Parkland.
Work hours will be 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. The roads may be reduced to one lane with alternating traffic during work hours.
About the Project
Crews will install sidewalks on the north side of 124th Street South between 12th Avenue South and 10th Avenue South. Sidewalks will also be installed on the east side of 12th Avenue South between 123rd Street South and 124th Street South. Street lights will be installed along 124th Street South and 12th Avenue South in the project area. A marked crosswalk with a pedestrian-activated flashing beacon will be installed across 12th Avenue South just north of 123rd Street South.
Crews removed vegetation and debris from the project site July 6-10. Utility relocation work began in mid-July, and will continue throughout the project.
From July 27 to early September, crews installed curb and sidewalk.
Crews will install lighting, the flashing beacon and crosswalk markings in late November.
The project’s contractor is Nordvind Company. The construction cost is approximately $280,000. This project is funded with a combination of Washington State Transportation Improvement Board Sidewalk Program funds and County Road Funds.
