Lane closures expected on SR410 in Bonney Lake for installation of sidewalk

Drivers in Bonney Lake will have to watch for lane closures on state Route 410 for the next few months as a new sidewalk is installed along a stretch of the highway.

For the next two-and-a-half months, the outside westbound lane of SR410 between 198th Avenue East and 208th Avenue East will close during the day for construction of a sidewalk along the north side of the roadway.

The lane will be closed from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day.

According to Bonney Lake Public Works Director Dan Grigsby, there may also be a few days when for a few hours the traffic signals at the intersection of SR410 and South Prairie Road will be turned off. During those times, a Bonney Lake Police Officer will direct traffic.

Timing of the signal closures will be scheduled to minimize impact on traffic flow.

The sidewalk construction project is set to cost $804,932. A Washington State Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Grant of $841,000 was received by the city in 2009 that will help pay for the design and construction of the sidewalk.

The project began Monday and is scheduled to be completed by Dec. 1.
