Island Crest Way project enters cleanup phase

Construction is winding down on Island Crest Way. City Engineer Clint Morris said the project has entered its final phases. Over the last two weeks, the project contractor has raised and patched most of the utility castings along the project. All but about 20 percent of the new pavement markings have been completed.

In an update on the city’s website, Morris said that he believes the project will be finished in three weeks time.

“We still have a fair amount of cleanup to do along the project, including some minor landscaping, some driveway paving and a few small sidewalk areas that need completion,” Morris said.

The striping contractor will return to finish the pavement marking work, which will include some minor changes north of Merrimount Drive to complete the transition to the new three-lane configuration.

Some traffic signs are yet to be placed or moved to their new locations. The mailbox at 90th Avenue S.E. will be re-installed once the sidewalk there has been poured.

Morris believes that traffic disruptions now will be minor.
