Commuters should expect traffic delays anywhere along the NE 85th Street/Redmond Way corridor from I-405 to Bear Creek Parkway.
The "Redmond overlay" is a federally-funded project to repair fatigued pavement areas, construct hot mix asphalt (HMA) overlay, and will replace all roads, gutters, pipes, culverts and signals on Redmond Way from 132nd Avenue NE to just west of Bear Creek Parkway.
This work will significantly affect traffic flow in the corridor and also slow access to the neighborhoods adjacent to Redmond Way.
To help alleviate weekday traffic congestion, weekend work is planned for pavement grinding during the day with pavement resurfacing occurring at night. This work is scheduled to take place in mid-summer. Alternate routes will be developed during this phase of the project.
Also the City of Kirkland is working on its portion of the street (NE 85th Street) at the same time. Project Manager: Joe O'Leary, firstname.lastname@example.org
