Cedar Avenue construction gets underway next week

Construction is expected to begin next week for the Low Impact Development (LID) Improvements for Cedar Avenue project. The city will build new bioretention facilities along Cedar Avenue between 1st Street and 4th Street to treat and filter stormwater runoff that flows into Ebey Slough. 

Similar to upgrades completed on 3rd Street in 2016 and 1st Street in 2017, the city is adding new landscaped areas alongside the roadway to capture and filter stormwater runoff. Additional improvements include more parking across Cedar from the Opera House, improved landscaping, pedestrian lighting, bike lanes and a Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) at 3rd and Cedar to improve pedestrian access and safety.

During construction, drivers can expect intermittent single-lane closures with flaggers and potential delays at times.

Contractor SRV Construction, Inc. is building this $1.59 million project, about 75% of which is funded by the Washington State Department of Ecology. Construction should be complete in late 2021 or early 2022. 

“The city is excited to continue its partnership with the Washington State Department of Ecology, improving the health of Ebey Slough and the Puget Sound, enhancing pedestrian access and safety and beautifying our roadways,” Project Engineer Adam Benton said.
