Businesses still open near Park Street roundabout construction

Concrete work slated to be done by mid-November.

North Bend’s newest roundabout at Park Street, Downing Avenue and North Bend Way is nearly operational, despite a wet September.

The city plans to have the paving and concrete work completed by mid-November, except for the final pavement lift and some of the curbing around power poles that may be completed in early 2020.

Landscaping in the roundabout and inside the median was slated to take place this week, weather permitting. Removal of existing power poles and undergrounding of existing overhead lines will most likely occur in early 2020.

Businesses in the Park Street Roundabout construction zone remain open. QFC plaza shoppers and R and R Rentals customers can use the entrances at Downing Avenue North as an alternative.

When completed, the roundabout is expected to improve public safety and reduce traffic congestion at the intersection.
