Several months ago, the City of North Bend reported on plans to construct a privately built roundabout (RAB) at 436th Avenue Southeast and Southeast 136th Street, just north of I-90 Exit 32.
Construction has begun, and utility installation and relocation will soon follow in July – August, with work being conducted by Puget Sound Energy (PSE). This portion of the project is expected to be completed within a couple of months.
After that work occurs, concrete pouring for the curbs and islands are tentatively scheduled for September and October before weather conditions become colder and wetter. The final pavement lift is planned for spring 2023, along with importing soil, plantings, paint striping, and signage.
The roundabout aims to mitigate potential future traffic impacts in connection with the River Run Apartment project located in the vicinity.
The River Run Apartment project will consist of 128 units in 11 buildings, with one additional building containing a clubhouse/office space. Approximately 28 of the new apartments will be designated as affordable housing for households earning 80% or less of the King County Area Median Income (AMI).
Contractor crews shall be responsible for all traffic control during construction. Residents may expect minor traffic delays. The City of North Bend apologizes for the inconveniences caused by this project and thanks residents for their patience and understanding.
