Drivers should plan for around-the-clock closures of eastbound BAT lane

The City of Kenmore’s contractor, MidMountain Contractors, Inc. will begin work on Monday, April 11 to widen the eastbound State Route 522 Business Access and Transit (BAT) lane. The lane will be widened approximately one foot to the south between 73rdAvenue NE and 77th Court NE.

The eastbound BAT lane will be closed around the clock beginning April 11 for approximately six weeks. Crews will re-landscape the area along the Burke-Gilman Trail, remove the existing curb, and adjust utilities in order to widen the lane to 13 feet.

The Burke-Gilman Trail and other eastbound lanes of SR 522 will not be affected by the work. Two bus stops will be affected by the closure. The eastbound bus stop at 77th Court NE will be closed while the work proceeds. Nearby bus stops are located at 73rd Ave NE and 83rd Place NE. The 73rd Ave NE bus stop will be relocated to the west side of the intersection. Crews will work from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The City of Kenmore has completed major improvements to two-thirds of the two-mile state highway between the east City limits and 65th Ave NE to improve transit reliability, increase vehicle and pedestrian safety, and ease congestion. For more information, check the Kenmore website.
