Project Description:

This project improved an old, sub-standard section of SE 256th Street from the "Y" intersection at Kent-Kangley Road to 116th Avenue SE.  This roadway connects two previously upgraded sections of SE 256th Street.  The project has improved traffic flow, access to businesses and homes, and improved safety for vehicles and pedestrians.  The project improvements:

  • Added a center turn lane, forming a three-lane road
  • Added bicycle lanes and sidewalks
  • Installed street lights, storm drains, and other utilities
  • Improved residential driveways and business access
  • Improved traffic efficiency by rebuilding intersections and retiming traffic signals
