Aurora Corridor construction for next week: digging up N 185th and building a wall on Aurora

Saturday, April 9, 2011

If you have little boys who love construction, this would be a good week for a field trip to Aurora.  There are two projects going on at the same time.  For lots more details, check out Shoreline's construction webpage.

N 165th - N 185th Streets (Marshbank Construction)

This week, crews will:
  • Begin substantial work on N 185th Street, including installing stormwater systems and joint utility trench crossings and excavating the roadway; traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction.
  • Excavate and backfill middle of Aurora between N 165th and N 175th Streets to continue work on center medians.
  • Begin pouring the concrete face of retaining wall on Aurora north of N 185th Street. Access to Firlands Way will be limited or closed from Aurora.
  • Install joint utility trench components and utility poles on N 182nd Street; access may be limited.
  • Pour driveways on the west side of Aurora north of N 175th Street (weather permitting).
  • Continue planting and installing topsoil and irrigation components.

N 185th - N 192nd Streets (Johansen Excavating)

This week, crews will:
  • Connect new stormwater pipe to existing stormwater system north of the YMCA. This work will be conducted at night (weather pending), and will take one night to complete. Traffic on Aurora will be reduced to a single lane in each direction.
  • Begin drilling and excavating on the west side of Aurora near the Department of Licensing and Shoreline Park & Ride in preparation for retaining wall construction.
  • Continue construction activities near the Shoreline Park & Ride. Work near the park and ride lot will continue through early 2012. Transit riders should take care to follow detour signs as bus stop pick up and drop off locations may need to be rerouted throughout the project.
