EDMONDS — Construction to improve the intersection of 76th Avenue W and 212th Street SW by Edmonds-Woodway High School will wrap up this summer.
Final paving and paint striping for the $5.9 million project — which started construction in spring 2017 — will take place this summer, possibly in July. The final tasks were initially scheduled for spring, but the work was postponed because of settlement issues in the existing pavement over the winter. Final repairs will be wrapped into the repaving work.
The project aims to improve traffic flow as well as make travel safer for cyclists.
When complete, there will be new turn lanes, a traffic signal and bike lanes. Utilities also were converted to an underground system.
