On Monday, July 13th, KSH Construction will begin work on reconstruction of SE Byers Avenue from between SE 6th to SE 12 Street.  This project work includes full reconstruction of the street, including widening for better traffic flow.  There will also be work on several side streets, including an eventual overlay of SE 12th and reconstruction of SE 8th from SE Byers to SE Court. 

Work has been ongoing in this neighborhood area for several years with replacement of the old natural gas steel mains by Cascade Natural Gas, replacement and upsizing of the City’s water main, and construction and replacement of 8th Street Bridge.

There will be a series of block closures by the contractor allowing for local traffic only.  The overall project work is to be completed by the end of October 31, 2020. 

If you are not local to this neighborhood, the detour route will be SE Court Avenue and SE Court Place between SE 6th and SE 12th/17th Streets.  Your assistance in using the detour will help the overall project work for the local neighborhood residents and the contractor.

This project work was awarded for $971,971, with a change order presently being negotiated based on contract unit pricing to add the reconstruction of a block-and-half of SE Byers between SE 6th and SE 8th Streets.
