Covington Connector Project (204th Ave SE) Open House Scheduled for Oct. 29

The Covington Connector project will be constructed in two phases and connect SE 256th St at the State Route 18 on/off-ramps to State Route 516 along the existing 204th Ave SE corridor. The project is divided into two roadway construction packages. The first package or Phase 1 (204th Ave SE and SR 516) includes widening along State Route 516 from 201st Ave SE to 207th Ave SE, as well as reconstructing the existing 204th Ave SE corridor. The second package or Phase 2 (LakePointe Blvd and SR 18) includes constructing a new roadway connecting the existing north terminus of 204th Ave SE to the SR 18 eastbound on/off-ramps through the existing Hawk gravel pit.  As mentioned above, this phase will be constructed as a separate project and is primarily a new route/new alignment project associated with the Lakepointe Development. The project is primarily a 3-lane (widens to 5-lane for a portion in the Lakepointe Development section) urban roadway including curb, gutter, sidewalks, bike lanes and landscaping.

This project received 24 million as part of the Connecting Washington Funds.  This project will be funded with the Connecting Washington Funds as well as development fees associated with the Lakepointe Development.

The project is entering the Right of Way (ROW) phase to acquire the necessary property to widen the 204th corridor.  This open house will discuss the alignment of the Phase 1 project and the impacts to adjacent property owners.
