Beginning Wednesday, June 26, 55th Avenue S in unincorporated King County near the cities of Kent, Federal Way and Auburn will be closed while crews replace an aging culvert. The new, larger culvert will help improve fish passage and habitat in Bingamon Creek, reduce roadway flooding and increase safety, including raising and widening the roadway. Construction will require full closure of the road for approximately ten (10) weeks. During construction, local access will be maintained outside of the work zone. The road is expected to open on Friday, August 30. Visit the My Commute webpage to view the map.
This work is part of Sound Transit’s Sounder South Expanded Service project. King County is administering construction on behalf of Sound Transit. For more information about the 55th Avenue S Culvert Replacement Project, visit www.kingcounty.gov/55thaves.
