Work on a new segment of the Cushman Trail along 14th Avenue Northwest will begin June 10. The work is expected to be completed by early August.
The 812-foot-long segment will run from the Cushman Trail trailhead on 14th Avenue Northwest to 300 feet north of 29th Street Northwest.
The segment will be 6-feet wide and will be made of porous hot mix asphalt to help reduce surface water runoff. There will be 1-foot wide shoulder on each side of the trail and a 6-foot wide drainage ditch between the edge of the trail and the existing paved shoulder.
Work hours will run from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. 14th Avenue Northwest may periodically be reduced to one lane with alternating traffic during work hours. Traffic will be controlled by flaggers during those times.
Crews will clear brush and trees the week of June 10. Utility companies will relocate utility lines and poles June 17-July 8. Construction work will resume July 9.
Northwest Cascade, Inc. is the contractor. The construction cost is approximately $220,000, and is funded with County Road Funds.
