Stilson Avenue in North Bend (432nd Avenue SE) will be closed Tuesday, Feb. 20 through Saturday, Feb. 24 for repairs to the pavement. The project will include work on the sub-structure of the road and a temporary asphalt layer, and will require the road to be closed completely during construction.

The pavement was damaged after recent sewer main extension work, which caused significantly more cracking and settling than was expected. The city required the developer to patch the road temporarily, until the Snoqualmie Valley School District’s mid-winter break, Feb. 19 to 23, when they could return to complete the repairs.

Final paving work, which will include pedestrian access, will be done this summer and may require additional road closures.

During construction, the same detours in place during the sewer main work will be used. In Phase 1, repair work north of SE 134th, Feb. 20 to 21, residents located south of SE 134th St will be detoured to either 436th St via SE 134th St or Maloney Grove Ave SE via SE 140th St.

In Phase II, south of SE 134th, Feb. 22 to 24, residents living south of the development will be detoured to SE Cedar Falls Way via SE 140th St and Maloney Grove Ave. SE.

Signage will be provided along SE Cedar Falls Way and SE 436th St. Flaggers will provide local access during working hours and the barricades will be removed for evenings and weekends.

Residents living along Stilson, SE 140th St and Maloney Grove Ave. SE must use Maloney Grove Ave and SE Cedar Falls Way to access Exit 32.
