Joint utility trench installation
Crews will continue digging the joint utility trench (JUT) on the east side of Aurora Avenue between N 165th and N 175th Streets. The JUT will run north in City right-of-way along Aurora and will house conduit and provide connections between underground utility vaults.

Installation of the JUT will affect walkways in the area. Crews will cover open trenches near driveways with steel plates to maintain vehicle access to businesses. Please follow the direction of flaggers. 

 Temporary signal work:
Temporary signals have been installed at N 185th Street and Aurora Avenue. Switching power from the old signals to these temporary signals will occur on Thursday night (with police assistance) to maintain safety.

Crews will also work on temporary signals at the intersection of N 175th Street and Midvale Avenue during the daytime. This is not expected to impact traffic.

Temporary lane closures at Midvale Avenue and N 175th Street
Crews will continue drainage work at the intersection of N 175th Street and Midvale Avenue on Monday and Tuesday during the daytime. Drivers should expect temporary lane closures on N 175th Street between approximately 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.

Driveway delineation
The City of Shoreline continues to work with the contractor to clearly mark driveways to businesses on the corridor. Thank you for your patience. 

Stay safe!
Please drive carefully in all construction zones and follow the directions of signs and flaggers. Pedestrians should take extra care between N 165th and N 175th Streets. Drivers are encouraged to take left turns at the signalized intersections at N 165th and N 175th Streets. When leaving businesses, please use caution.
