  • Firwood Road will be closed to all through traffic between Waluga Drive and Boones Ferry Road (local access for businesses and residents will be permitted)
  • Traffic on Firwood will be detoured onto Waluga Drive and Madrona Street
  • One lane in each direction will remain open on Boones Ferry Road, but the signal will be turned off and traffic will be flagged through the intersection
  • Access will remain open to all businesses in the corridor – please use Boones Ferry Road to access driveways

Next Steps for Area South of Bryant

Over the last two weeks, concrete pours have taken place for the new medians and curbs along portions of Bryant.

Next week, crews plan to pave the lanes abutting the new medians south of Bryant. From here, crews will complete the new left turn pocket for the Lake Grove Shopping Center, and finish the remainder of the medians between Bank of America and Bryant Road.

Over the coming months, landscapers will start placing the plants and trees along the sidewalks and in the new medians! In addition, electrical crews will begin placing the new street lights, and the new signals at Madrona and Bryant intersections may be activated!

Area North of Bryant

Work is progressing well with concrete pours for the curbs, stormwater planters, driveway aprons, sidewalks, and expanded sidewalk areas north of Bryant. This work continues over the coming month.

In late November, crews plan to shift pedestrians onto portions of the new sidewalk along the eastside (between Key Bank and McDonald’s). This will allow Centurylink crews to begin removing part of an old, existing telecommunications ductbank that is located underneath portions of the current temporary pedestrian access route between Bryant and Reese Road. The ductbank conflicts with the new roadway, so part of it needs to be removed.

Bryant Road Stormwater Night Work

Stormwater work planned for Bryant Road has been rescheduled and is now expected to start in mid-November. Pipe laying crews will install a new stormwater line on Bryant Road between a portion of Boones Ferry Road and Upper Drive. In conjunction with the storm work, a private development project will also be working on installing a sewer line connection on Bryant Road.

Due to the high volume of traffic on Bryant Road, this work will be conducted at night with lane closures, and traffic will be flagged from 10 p.m. – 6 a.m. The stormwater and sewer work is expected to take about three weeks to complete.

Neighbors, please expect an increase in noise and truck traffic during work hours. Thank you for your patience during this work.

Shop Lake Grove & Follow the Blue Cones

Please continue to support your local businesses in the project area, particularly this holiday season! Follow the blue cones and signage to access driveways.

Work Hours

Ongoing day work and intermittent night work continues throughout the project area. When work is occurring at night, traffic is flagged and shifted to one lane. Any night work occurring in or near the signalized intersections requires flagged traffic. Thank you to all residents, businesses and property owners for your continued patience with the construction and impacts.

In observance of the Thanksgiving weekend, there is no planned work from Thursday, 11/26 – Sunday, 11/29.
