Grinding operations for the Redmond Way Overlay Maintenance Project are tentatively scheduled to begin Thursday morning, August 2nd. Grinding will affect eastbound lanes of Redmond Way through Saturday, August 4th from 7am to 7pm daily. Westbound lanes will be affected beginning Monday, August 6th through Wednesday August 8th from 7am to 7pm daily. Motorists can expect delays through the corridor during grinding operations and are encouraged to use alternate routes.
Paving is tentatively scheduled to take place beginning Saturday August 11th and Saturday August 18th. All grinding and paving operations are dependent on traffic and weather conditions. Construction contingencies may impact operations and durations.
In addition, work by the City of Kirkland on the corridor west of 132nd Ave NE (with emphasis on the intersection of NE 85th Street and 132nd Ave NE) will result in additional congestion along the route.
The Redmond Way Overlay project will repair and resurface approximately 1.8 miles of worn and damaged pavement running east of 132nd Ave NE to Bear Creek Parkway. This work is the first significant maintenance project for this stretch of Redmond Way since 1994. The City assumed control of the road from the State in 2010.
