From the City of Shoreline website
Aurora Avenue between N 165th and N 185th Streets is currently under construction. On November 16, 2009, the City awarded the construction contract to Marshbank Construction, Inc. in the amount of $19,069,831.68. Marshbank was given formal notice to proceed with construction on January 4, 2010. The construction of this segment is anticipated to be completed the summer of 2011. Please visit the Construction Page for additional information.
Marshbank’s work is split into three distinct stages. The first construction stage shifted traffic on Aurora to the west so that construction focused on the east side. Undergrounding of the existing overhead utilities, installation of sidewalk and curbs, and initial paving were included in this first stage of work.
The contractor is finishing up stage two activities where traffic was shifted to the east side of Aurora for crews to complete the undergrounding of utilities and install sidwalks, curbs and driveways along the west side. The contractor has also begun a transition to the third stage where traffic in each direction is pushed out to the curbs and the median work as well as the landscape work will be completed.

The City has assembled a strong and experienced team to assist us in the construction of this section of Aurora:
HDR Engineering designed the project, and will remain on the team to provide design services during construction. In this role, HDR checks all submittals from Marshbank and is ready should any design modifications be needed due to unforeseen circumstances or changes.
KBA Construction Management performs the construction management function, which includes project inspection, testing, and budget and expense tracking.
EnviroIssues is the project community outreach team responsible for 24-hour hotline management and working with the contractor to provide early warning to businesses on changes to their frontage and access. Their charge is “no surprises” for businesses, residents and property owners in the construction zone.
