Scholls Ferry Road between 130th Ave and 135th Ave
A developer is building a new apartment complex between Scholls Ferry Rd and Hawksbeard St. Their work includes repairing pavement and widening Hawksbeard and adding sidewalk along the apartment frontage, and improving sidewalks along Scholls Ferry and 135th.
Hwy 99W near Bull Mountain Road and along 109th Ave
A developer is building a new subdivision on the east side of Highway 99W across from its intersection with Bull Mountain Rd. Some delays may occur between 9am and 3pm when the builder is working near Hwy 99W.

Traffic Signals on Bonita Road at 72nd Avenue and 74th Avenue
We have made some minor adjustments to the timing of the traffic signals at the intersections of Bonita Road with 72nd Avenue and 74th Avenue. This should help the eastbound flow of traffic on Bonita Road during the morning peak hour.
