  • SE 182nd Avenue

    Road maintenance on SE 182nd Ave. between Division and SE 5th Streets is postponed.  The improvements are now scheduled for Summer 2018.

    Improvements

    This section of 182nd will be treated with Inlay to fix the portion of the pavement that still has a good foundation. The top layers of the pavement will be milled (grinding the upper layers of asphalt) to remove any cracks, ruts or imperfections. A new layer of asphalt will then be applied, creating a smooth road way. The work includes improvements to sidewalk ramps and driveways. 

       Traffic and neighborhood impacts

      • Residents will be accommodated; however, delays should be expected.
      • One lane in each direction will be open to through traffic. Please follow detours through your neighborhood.
      • Construction dates are weather-dependent and subject to change.
      • If you live on 182nd and work falls on your garbage/recycling/yard debris collection day, place carts out the night before.

      Bella Vista Neighborhood

      Project overview

      This project replaced existing pavement and improved curb ramps.  The road work followed the upgrade to aged sewer lines.

        Affected neighborhood

        • Northwest neighborhood (north of Bella Vista Park)
        • Streets impacted: Between Birdsdale and Bella Vista Drive; NW 5th, NW 6th Drive, NW 7th Place, NW Riverplace, NW Cascade Court.
        • See the Map

        Work is complete

        • Sewer line replacement is complete
        • Paving and road maintenance is complete 

          Improvements

          The road was rebuilt using a process that provides a stronger base, is cost effective, saves time and resources.  Full Depth Reclamation (FDR) rebuilds worn out asphalt by recycling the existing roadway. 

          • Grind down existing road to rebuild the road base.
          • The asphalt is then mixed with cement, making a stronger road base.
          • The base is shaped and compacted.

                                • 2017: Engineering and design: no traffic impacts expected during this stage.
                                • 2018: Construction
                                  The reconstruction of the damaged section of NE Kane Drive will happen in the summer when Kelly Creek is running low and weather conditions are most favorable.

                                Background

                                In December 2015, during a historic rain event, debris accumulated in the inlet of the Kelly Creek culvert under NE Kane Drive. The debris in the culvert blocked the flow of water through the culvert resulting in a washout of the road. Emergency repairs were completed immediately after the storm to reopen the roadway and maintain creek flow.

                                 The City has received relief funds to repair the culvert, roadway and surrounding creek area.
