Road work to begin in 2 neighborhoods
SNOHOMISH - Work to lay down new asphalt and install some utility infrastructure upgrades will affect Weaver Way and Hillcrest Drive this summer.
Both projects are likely to begin by the end of this month or early August, city engineer Yosh Monzaki said. Work will take around two months to complete. Construction dates will be finalized when the contractor finishes up paperwork for the projects.
Weaver Way, which will get new asphalt, may have to be closed during construction and will affect homeowners in the area, Monzaki said.
“We’ll notify them directly, through maybe a letter, knocking on doors, and information on the website,” Monzaki said. “If we shut (Weaver Way) down that would be the quickest way to get that overlay done.”
As for Hillcrest, Monzaki said, “chances are half the road will still be open, I’m not sure if we’d close that one completely. We’d pave half the road and do the other half after to allow at least one lane of traffic.”
Award Construction won the bid for both projects.
Weaver Way and Hillcrest Drive improvements are part of the city’s Transportation Benefit District project list. The two projects will use $265,000 from the TBD sales tax supported fund and $154,000 from other city funds.
New asphalt will be put in on the cul-de-sac of Weaver Way east of Seneca Avenue and on Hillcrest Drive from 13th Street to Madrona Drive. The Hillcrest Drive project also will include utility work on water lines and storm water infrastructure.
