CP2121 Riverwalk Drive SE Non-Motorized Improvements

Project Description:
Full roadway closure of Riverwalk Drive SE from Auburn Way South to Howard Road is needed for the construction of the Riverwalk Drive SE Non-Motorized Improvements Project. The project will construct sidewalk on the east side of Riverwalk Drive between Howard Road and Auburn Way South. Additional improvements include constructing storm drain improvements, replacing the roadway pavement surface, installing additional street lighting, and installing bulb outs with rectangular rapid flashing beacons. The full closure is needed, in part, due to a Puget Sound Energy (PSE) gas pipeline in Riverwalk Drive that conflicts with the City’s improvements and must be relocated. Additionally, PSE’s work requires removal of concrete roadway sections beneath the existing asphalt roadway that will require the roadway to continue to be closed as the City re-constructs and re-paves the roadway. PSE will be on site between January 17, 2023, through approximately February 10, 2023. From February through May, the City’s Contractor will be re-constructing utilities and pavement and completing other work that requires the road to be closed. The full closure for PSE’s and the City’s work is unavoidable due to Riverwalk Drive’s narrow width, curves, and steep hills that provide limited space for construction. 

Access to the Muckleshoot Child Care Center will be maintained via Auburn Way South. Detour routes will be signed as shown on the map (PDF).
