Project Construction Updates

Updated:  February 27, 2019


Foster Streetscape Project Construction Schedule Update


Substantial completion for all project elements, except for final paving of Foster Rd between 82nd and 90th Ave and associated striping, is anticipated for the first week in March, weather permitting.  The final paving and striping work will likely be delayed until sometime next spring when weather conditions allow that work to be performed.

Pedestrian Crossing Improvements:

Most of the rapid flash beacons and median refuge islands are now in and are activated.  The median island and RFB at 84th/ Ellis will be completed after the final paving of that section of Foster and associated striping.

Street Lighting:

Completed.  The lights are now on!

Sidewalk Improvements- SE 82nd to 90th Ave:

Substantially complete.  The temp striping will remain until weather conditions allow final paving and striping.

Paving- SE 82nd to 90th Ave:

With the completion of the sidewalk improvements, project is ready to install the final layer of pavement, but the weather is not.  It is likely that this work will be deferred to early-mid spring when weather conditions allow the work to be completed.


Final striping for the project, which includes the bike lanes, will most likely need to be deferred until next spring, when weather conditions allow the work to be completed.

SE 72nd Ave Intersection Improvements:

Work at the intersection is nearing completion.  The signal is expected to be turned on next week.  Removal of the old traffic signal will follow during the second week of March.

SE Holgate Blvd Intersection Improvements:

Wok at this intersection is also nearing completion.  The new signal has been turned on.  There is still some corner concrete work to finish, which is expected to wrapped up next week.

Street Trees:

Planting of the street is largely been completed.
