$536,000 In Federal Stimulus Money Funding 4th Ave SW Construction; Completion Target Is Mid-December
$536,000 in Federal Stimulus money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) are funding new construction on 4th Avenue SW between SW 156th and 153rd Streets in Burien, and should be completed by mid-December, according to Project Manager Brian Victor.
The construction is rebuilding the northbound lane of 4th Ave SW between SW 156th and 153rd Streets, adding new curbs, gutters, sidewalks, bike lanes and even street lights similar to the ones in Town Square.
There will be local access for area businesses and residences, but motorists are advised to avoid the construction area if possible.
Here’s the latest update on construction:
Construction is requiring intermittent closure of 4th Ave SW at various times of the day for heavy equipment.
Access to 4th Ave SW between said intersections will be limited to one lane during business hours; limited 2-way access will be provided after 5pm.
At SW 155th Street and 4th Ave SW, access will be restricted for eastbound and westbound; there will be NO WESTBOUND access from SW 155th Street to 4th Avenue SW for the next three to four weeks.
At SW 154th Street and 4th Avenue SW, access will be limited for eastbound and westbound traffic. Westbound access at this intersection will be closed intermittently during the day; limited access will be available in the evenings.
This phase of the project will continue for the next three to four weeks, with a projected completion time of mid-December.
