Construction Updates: Expect downtown road closures June through the Spring

Several construction projects in Downtown Redmond are scheduled to begin throughout the month of June, including the 2-Way Street Conversion of Redmond Way and Cleveland Street and two neighboring private development projects.
Construction project teams are working together to coordinate the work, impacts and communication to the community. In addition to these Construction Updates, the City will have staff on site reaching out and available to the community. We will be sharing updates on the projects, progress and road closures as events unfold. Currently:
- Expect to see start-up of the projects throughout June including signage, traffic control devices, job trailers, etc.
- The 2-Way Street Conversion project is expected to take approximately 18 months. The private development projects will be approximately 18-22 months. These are estimates at this time.
- Please expect pedestrian detour routes around the work zones. Please follow pedestrian sidewalk closures and detours.
- There will be two temporary construction street closures including:
• 168th Ave NE (near Redmond Way between Anderson Park and Sleep Train): Closure related to 2-Way Street Conversion project. Access will be from the north off NE 79th St. Closure estimated June 2016 through Fall 2017.
• NE 79th St (near Redmond Teen Center west of 166th Ave NE): Closure related to private development construction on both sides of NE 79th St. Local or limited access only. Teen Center parking and access available from the north off NE 80th Street. Closure estimated June 2016 through Spring 2018.
