Park Street Roundabout Construction to Begin Mid-June

Park ST RAB

Construction is slated to begin in mid-June on the Park Street – North Bend Way Roundabout. During the Tuesday, May 21st Council meeting, Councilmembers unanimously approved Active Construction, Inc. (ACI) as the contractor for the project and directed staff to expedite the improvements.  

“This is a huge project for the City as it will increase public safety by eliminating the dangerous left turn out of the QFC parking lot,” Councilmember Chris Garcia said. “This project is a high-priority for Council and will change traffic patterns to make it much safer for pedestrians, public transit, school buses and all vehicles. I’m excited to get this going.” 

City staff opened bidding for contractors on Wednesday, May 8th and received four bids. ACI was the lowest bidder and came in approximately $4,000 under the engineer’s estimate for the project.    

The project is anticipated to be completed in mid-October. Two lanes will remain open during the construction for traffic flow. This roundabout will improve public safety, reduce traffic congestion and improve downtown walkability.  

If you have any questions about the project, please contact Tom Mohr,  Interim Public Works Director at 425-888-7653 or email tmohr@northbendwa.gov.
