Bonita Road (Fanno Creek to I - 5)
Starting next week, the contractor will be working on a water pipeline connection located on Bonita Road, near Fanno Creek, next to the Bonita Villa Apartments. During Construction (for a couple of weeks), both eastbound and westbound travel on Bonita Road will be maintained, but delays are likely during the morning and evening rush hours.
Main Street / Scoffins Street Intersection All-Way-Stop
The intersection of Main Street with Scoffins Street has been converted to all-way-stop Traffic control. This should improve safety, walkability, and traffic flow. In this initial test phase the Signal is operating in red-flash mode so the intersection functions as an all-way-stop. If after a few months the intersection is indeed functioning better as an all-way-stop, the signal will be removed.
Walnut Street (Tiedeman to 116th and intersection with 135th)
Road construction starts in March along Walnut Street (between 116th and Tiedeman). Trees have already been removed. This project will add sidewalks, bike lanes, a center turn lane, and underground utilities along Walnut Street from Tiedeman Ave to 116th Ave, and install a traffic signal in place of the all-way-stop at the intersection of Walnut St with 135th Ave. Construction work is scheduled through May 2017, with a three-week closure in July/August 2016 to replace the culvert west of the Fowler tennis courts. A ‘meet-the-contractor’ open house will be held the evening of March 3rd from 5 to 7pmat St. Anthony’s School.

River Terrace developments are in progress. Earthwork and grading has begun on a 137-lot subdivision, a 215-lot subdivision (both west of Roy Rogers Road just south of Scholls Ferry Road), and an 82-lot subdivision (west of 150thAvenue south of Bull Mountain Road).

95th Ave (north of Greenburg Rd) and North Dakota St (East of Greenburg Rd) Sidewalks
The city has opened bids to construct new sidewalks along 95th Ave north of Greenburg Rd and North Dakota St east of Greenburg Rd. This will build ‘missing link’ sidewalks along two key neighborhood entrances connecting residents to the rest of the city’s sidewalks and nearby transit lines. Construction is planned from mid-March through May.
85th Ave (South of Durham Rd)
A contractor for Clean Water Services (CWS) has paved 85th Ave (the extension of Hall Blvd) south of Durham Rd. CWS is shortening the public portion of 85th Ave to reduce traffic through its wastewater treatment plant area. Walking and cycling access to the Cook Park trails will be maintained.
