Single lane traffic on Israel Road—please use alternate routes

Drivers can expect lane closures to continue due to major construction along Israel Road SW, between Littlerock Road and Interstate 5. Traffic control and flaggers will be in place; however, delays will occur and alternate routes are highly advised.

What’s happening now? Recent heavy rainfalls and snow caused some delays. Active Construction is now finishing the installation of the new watermain, storm pipe and catch basins on Israel Road.

Tyee Drive is ready for curb and gutter installation, with Israel Road close behind. Traffic revisions and delays are expected for the following six weeks as the Contractor installs concrete curbs, gutters, the roundabout, and sidewalks.  

Construction work hours are typically between 7:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. The project is anticipated to be complete by May of 2017. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact John Norman, City Engineer, at 360-754-4140 or
