South 144th Street Project Phase II

Project Overview

In 2007/2008, the City completed construction of South 144th Street Phase I from Military Road to Tukwila International Boulevard. South 144th Street Phase II is from Tukwila International Boulevard to 42nd Avenue S and will coordinate with the Tukwila Village construction. The City was successful in obtaining a $1 million grant from the Washington State Transportation Improvement Board for the improvements. The road construction will include curb, gutter, sidewalk, bike lanes, pavement restoration, illumination, drainage and utility undergrounding. Phase II also includes a new traffic signal at 42nd Avenue South and a mid-block rapid flash beacon for pedestrians.

On February 21, 2017, Council awarded the $1,883,895.03 bid to Marshbank Construction. In April 2017, South 144th Street was closed to traffic. In September 2017, one westbound lane was openned. The road will be closed again for at least five days for the final overlay, weather dependent.



The project is currently projected to be substantially completed by the end of November with physical completion before the end of 2017.

Project Status Update as of 11/09/17

Surface asphalt paving was completed on 11/7/17 and the road has been opened to two-way traffic. There were issues with the paving slope and the City’s construction management team is requiring that the contractor grind and re-pave approximately 300 feet of the road section. The new traffic signal poles for the 42nd Ave S/S 144th St intersection should be delivered by 11/10/17 and the pole installation will take at least two weeks. A few sidewalk sections on the north side of the road will soon be completed with concrete pouring. Thereafter, scoring cuts on the south side sidewalk will begin.
