Coal Creek Parkway lane closures, in addition to the one happening due to the Bellevue culvert construction, are coming mid-August.

The city will repave four travel lanes and several intersections of a nearly one-mile segment between Newcastle Way and Southeast 84th Way. The work will require partial, and possibly full, street closures during weekdays and/or weekends. Exact times and dates of the closure are not yet available.

The city announced in October that a portion of Coal Creek Parkway between Newcastle Way and Southeast 84th Way was showing signs of “premature failure,” and needed repairs.

A grant from the state’s Transportation Improvement Board will fund roughly half of the street’s repairs.
