Merlino Construction will begin work on Monday, January 27, 2014 on the final section of the Aurora Corridor, from N 192nd to N 205th at the county line.

As a first step, crews will shift traffic to the east to create a work zone on the west side of Aurora between N 192nd and N 200th Streets. This work will be done at night
from 7 pm to 5 am.

Once traffic is shifted, crews will complete the majority of construction activities during daytime hours, between 7 am and 6 pm. Traffic shifts and delays will be inevitable during construction. However, the City requires the contractor to maintain two travel lanes in each direction during peak-commute hours to assist with traffic flow. 

Activities on the west side of Aurora will continue through most of this year, including asphalt pavement removal, excavation, utility work, curbs, gutters, sidewalks, retaining walls, and paving.

Work will start on the N 200th to N 205th section in March.

Following are the immediate traffic changes:

  • There will no longer be a center median turn lane. Traffic access may be controlled at specific locations by uniformed police officers when there is night work.
  • Left turns on and off Aurora will only be allowed at N 192nd and N 200th Streets.
  • U-turns are permitted only at these signalized intersections when there is enough room to safely make a U-turn.
  • Left turns will no longer be allowed at N 195th, N 198th, and N 199th Streets.

Drivers are encouraged to take alternate routes to access businesses.
All businesses are open during construction and the City of Shoreline encourages shoppers to utilize local businesses. Business driveways will remain delineated with construction barrels and marked with blue “Business Access” signs.
