Be prepared for traffic delays

The widening project of the Woodinville-Duvall Road has begun.

From the City of Woodinville's website:

"The Woodinville-Duvall Road Widening Project involves the widening of NE Woodinville-Duvall Road from 156th Avenue NE to the east City limits at 171st Place NE. The existing two-lane roadway will be widened to three-lanes to provide an additional center turn lane and improved sidewalks and bike lanes. Other improvements will include drainage improvements, traffic signal improvements, street lighting, and landscape improvements. The overall length of the project is approximately 1.1 miles. The primary purpose of the project is to improve safety and to relieve traffic congestion."

Of interest to those living south of the Woodinville-Duvall Road, in the general area of 156th Ave. NE and to those in South Snohomish County (75th Ave. SE, aka, Bostian Road) ...

There's a new reader board on 156th Ave. NE which says:
"April through September", "Expect Long Delays" and "Alternate Route Advised".

Which alternate route might they be referring to?

240th Street SE/Highway 9/Costco, where the retaining wall is currently being dismantled and rebuilt? Or Paradise Lake Road/Highway 522, just a mere 3+ miles in the other direction?

Well, at least we don't have any other major traffic issues to deal a 7-field sports complex might bring!
