Park Street Roundabout Work Requires East Park Street Closure October 7th Through October 18th

ParkStDetour

Beginning Monday, October 7th through Friday, October 18th, East Park Street will be closed from Healy Avenue South to North Bend Way in the eastbound direction so the contractor can complete work on the remaining portion of the East Park Street portion of the roundabout. 

Appropriate traffic control signage will be in place to guide drivers to a detour route off of East Park Street onto Healy Avenue South and then to Orchard Avenue SE which brings vehicles back to North Bend Way.  Local access along this closed segment of East Park Street will be allowed by the traffic control company.

Starting Monday, October 7th, the contractor will begin removal of pavement and grading for Phase 3. This phase entails construction on the east side of East Park Street and another large portion of the roundabout.  All work is weather dependent, but the contractor is making good progress and the roundabout is still on schedule to be operational by the end of October.

As a reminder, businesses along the construction zone will remain open during construction. Residents and visitors are encouraged to support downtown businesses during construction. We also ask drivers to be courteous and patient of others attempting to pull into and out of business driveways. As an alternative, QFC plaza shoppers are encouraged to use the entrance off of Downing Avenue North.

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.
