Road Alerts: 116th, Golf Club Road
Posted on 11/28/2017

116th Avenue Southeast

Drivers should prepare for periodic lane closures on 116th Avenue Southeast between Southeast 80th and Southeast 82nd starting in early January and continuing through the first few months of 2018.

The one-lane closures will be from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to avoid impacting normal commuting hours. Minimal traffic delays are anticipated. Flaggers will be on site to direct traffic. Both lanes will be open for normal traffic outside of the designated closure times.

The roadwork is necessary to excavate the area and make connections to existing utilities for the Foxwoods housing development. An exact start date is not yet available, but the contractor will provide notification one week prior to the beginning of the work. Check here and www.newcastlewa.gov for the latest updates.

Newcastle Golf Club Road

The eastbound lane closures on Newcastle Golf Club Road are about to come to an end. The corridor just east of the Coal Creek Family YMCA is expected to return to normal in mid-December. The steel plates will be removed and the road temporarily patched with asphalt. Ultimately, the road will be repaved across its entire width early next summer when weather conditions are suitable for large-scale paving projects.

For approximately one-quarter mile, the eastbound lane is closed from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays. When conditions permit, lanes in both directions are open, however, most of the time, only one lane is open. Traffic control flaggers are on site to direct traffic. The roadwork is a result of the effort to connect utility lines for the Notch Apartments being constructed just east of the YMCA.

Thanks for your patience during construction!
