The final paving portion of the Downtown Snoqualmie Tree Streets Infrastructure Improvement Project – roadway grinding and repaving – was scheduled to begin on Friday, June 10th.
Due to the heavy rain forecast over the weekend, this work has been delayed and will be rescheduled during more favorable weather for paving. This will most likely occur near the end of June. An update will be provided once a schedule is confirmed.
This repaving project will impact multiple areas of downtown Snoqualmie, including:
- SE Cedar Street between SE Cedar Place and SE Fir Street
- SE Fir Street between Pickering CT SE and SE Cedar Street
- Pine Ave SE between SE Cedar Street and SE 8oth Street
- SE King Street between Silva Ave SE and Railroad Ave SE/SR 202
- The intersection of SE River Street and Maple Ave SE
During paving operations, drivers may experience rolling closures of these local roadways and intersections. Arterial routes, including River Street and Pine Ave, will be narrowed to a single lane controlled by flaggers.
Following paving, the redesigned intersections at King/Maple and River/Maple will receive new planter beds enclosed by a wrought iron fence. It is anticipated that new heritage trees that are part of this project will be installed during early fall, a more favorable time for tree planting.
The $3.4 million Tree Streets Project is part of the 5-year, $17 million Downtown Snoqualmie Utilities Capital Improvement Plan designed to replace aging water, sewer and storm infrastructure to increase reliability and longevity of the systems as well as improve driver and pedestrian safety in the area.
