Project Overview

 Description
The project includes the reconstruction and widening of 9th St NE from 1st Ave N to NE 80th St.

Location
Phase 1 includes 9th St NE from 1st Ave N to the east approximately ½ mile.
Phase 2 includes 9th St NE from NE 80th St to the west approximately ½ mile.

Purpose
9th St NE as it exists today is a two-lane rural road with narrow shoulders and multiple hills that cause sight distance issues. Future industrial development is driving the need for this road to receive some attention. 9th St NE between 1st Ave N and NE 80th St will be reconstructed in two phases.

  • Phase one will reconstruct the west half of this section of 9th St NE with a three-lane curbed roadway with the center lane being a left turn lane. The profile of the road will be altered to reduce the sight distance issues and increase safety for turning vehicles.
  • Phase two will reconstruct the east half of this section of 9th St NE, including improvements to the railroad crossing. This will also be a curbed three-lane cross-section.

Timeline
Phase 1 is substantially complete.
Phase 2 is anticipated to begin summer of 2023.
