NEW — 2:30 p.m. Aug. 29, 2014

Bellevue utilities crews will close the outside, northbound lane on Coal Creek Parkway at Forest Drive, Tuesday, Sept. 2, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The closure is necessary to make repairs to the sidewalk, manhole and wastewater system. If crews find repairs are going to take longer than one day, the lane closure may last multiple days.

For questions on the road closure, call Bellevue Utilities Operations and Maintenance at 452-7840.
