Parkway to open in July in Newcastle, Renton 

The Coal Creek Parkway road construction project is about 80 percent complete, much to the delight of tens of thousands of motorists who use the thoroughfare daily.

The bridge should be complete by early June, and the entire project is still scheduled to open on time and under budget in mid-July.Utility crews are working to install their lines underground.

“People will notice the power lines disappearing soon,” City Spokesman Doug Alder said.

The contractor is forming the bridge deck for the west half of the bridge, followed by the placement of the concrete deck next month. The bridge’s arches, which will resemble a train trestle, will go up sometime in April, Alder said.

“More and more, this project is really taking shape,” he said.  

Specifics regarding a ribbon-cutting celebration have yet to be finalized, but the city hopes to hold it sometime in early July, he said.

Meanwhile, Renton should have at least a portion of its Coal Creek/Duvall Avenue Northeast project completed by early July, said Rob Lochmiller, project manager for the city of Renton. 

“The contractor is under contract to have the project completed by the end of September, but he has an incentive to have at least two of the four lanes open by early July,” he said. “So, at the very least, we’ll be open for traffic by July.”
