Kamins Construction began constructing this project in late March. They have installed the underground electrical components, graded the curb/gutter area, installed the signal pole and arm, and poured concrete sidewalks and ADA ramps.

Work continues after a hiatus that allowed time to procure that signal equipment like signal poles, a controller cabinet, and thermal cameras.
The contractor should finish up work in mid October.
The project includes the design and construction of a new traffic signal and related intersection improvements with channelization, intersection lighting, ADA improvements, and other related work at the intersection. This project will help the flow of traffic on SR 527 and at the project intersection. The result will decrease the amount of idling time of vehicles and emissions along the SR 527 corridor due to the redistribution of traffic using this intersection rather than the congested intersection at SR 527 and 220th Street SE.
This project is included in the City’s Capital Facilities Plan (Project #T68) and funded through the 2017-2018 City Budget. Project funding was provided by a Surface Transportation Program (STP) grant from the Puget Sound Regional Council and from the City’s Capital Improvement Fund. The project has been added to the State’s Transportation Improvement Project (PDF) list as project number BOTH-44.
