North Bend Way from Bendigo to Ballarat to close for three weeks, starting Tuesday

East North Bend Way, between Main Avenue North and Ballarat Avenue North, will close for approximately three weeks, starting Tuesday, Sept. 5. The closure has been planned to allow for work on the downtown plaza project which began July 24.

While the intersection is closed, downtown will have reduced parking spaces, so the city has prepared an alternative parking map for residents and shoppers to use.

Traffic will be detoured around the intersection, and signs will be set up to direct drivers around the construction and to alternative parking spots.

The alternative parking map, construction schedule, design layout, and other project documents, including a list of frequently asked questions, is available on the city’s Public Works Department Current Projects Web page, http://northbendwa.gov/index.aspx?NID=161.

The downtown plaza project construction is expected to last through November.

When finished, the downtown plaza will be a downtown attraction for shoppers and diners, with wider sidewalks, pedestrian amenities and traffic-calming features.

Downtown businesses remain open during the construction. Residents and visitors are encouraged to continue supporting downtown businesses during this time.

If you have questions about the project, or would like to be added to the project email list for occasional email updates, send email to downtownplaza@northbendwa.gov or call the North Bend Public Works Department at (425) 888-0486.
