Construction on the City of Edmonds’ 84th Avenue West overlay project will begin next week, and is expected to be completed in November. Expect delays.

The project involves a full-width roadway grind and 2-inch overlay with new pavement between 212th Street SW and 220th Street SW. The project also proposes to add bike lanes on both sides of the street from 215th Street SW to 212th, and sharrows from 220th to 215th, in order to connect to the existing bicycle networks along 220th and 212th.

The addition of bike lanes will modify the existing lane configuration and remove on-street parking on the east side of 84th Avenue West from 215th to 212th. Pedestrian curb ramps will be upgraded to comply with the current American with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards.

Pedestrian safety improvements will be incorporated into the project through the installation of pedestrian-actuated rectangular rapid flashing beacons (RRFB) at the crosswalk directly in front of the Chase Lake Elementary School, and a bulb-out at the 215th crosswalk.

Stormwater improvements will be completed from 220th to 215th, including increasing the stormwater line to a 12-inch pipe and upgrading catch basins.

Intermittent traffic delays can be expected, but residential, pedestrian, and business access will be open throughout the project. The project is being funded by a federal transportation grant and local funding from the stormwater utility fund and real estate excise tax.
