Construction underway on last section of Aurora from Shoreline to Edmonds
Merlino Construction has begun work on the final section of the Aurora Corridor, from North192nd to North 205th at the Snohomish-King County line, our friends at Shoreline Area News report.
Traffic shifts and delays will be inevitable during the process, however most work during this first section, North 192nd to North 200th, will be done at night from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m.
As a first step, crews will shift traffic to the east to create a work zone on the west side of Aurora.
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 North 200th to North 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.
