Construction will begin soon along Maloney Grove Avenue SE in North Bend, for the Maloney Grove 13 subdivision.

The subdivision, named MG13, is being developed by Polygon Homes and consists of infrastructure construction on 13 lots.

Phase 1 of the subdivision involves technical analysis, preliminary engineering, public notification, a State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) determination, permitting, and final engineering approval.

Phase 2 involves clearing and grading, infrastructure (sewer, water, storm drainage, dry utilities, roads) construction, and final plat approval.

Phase 3 is when the actual home construction will occur.

During these phases, the city provides technical reviews, coordination, permitting, inspections, etc.

Properties near MG13 were notified in 2014 of the upcoming work.

Polygon expects to complete infrastructure construction and record the final plat (subdivision) by summer 2018. Construction on the houses is expected to start in the summer.

An extension to SE Symmons Place is part of the project and should be completed and opened once all sitework is nearing completion.

To address safety concerns during the work, the city has designated a “haul route” from Exit 32 for construction machinery and worker vehicles for access. The approved route travels from Exit 32 along 436th Avenue onto SE Cedar Falls Way, then south down Malone Grove Avenue SE to the construction entrance. The city will not allow construction access on other roads.

The city will also use inspectors on Maloney Grove Ave SE to ensure traffic control measures are being followed and public safety is not being compromised.

Partial lane closures should be expected, but a full closure won’t be needed.

Construction noise is limited, by city code, to the hours of 7 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. weekdays, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays.

To report a work hours violation, call the city’s code enforcement number at (425) 888-7645.

For further information during the project, please call the Public Works office at (425) 888-0486 or send email to Carrie Smith at csmith@northbendwa.gov, or Brian Tucker at btucker@northbendwa.gov.
