MALTBY — Highway 524 between 4824 Maltby Road and 208th Street SE will be closed from 9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6 to 5 a.m. Monday, Sept. 9 for the construction of a roudabout. Local residents will have access, but all other traffic will be detoured to alternate routes. Northbound traffic will be rerouted to 180th Street SE. Southbound traffice will move to 228th Street SE.
The construction of the roundabout will improve safety and traffic control for Northshore School District's new Elementary #21 school, which is scheduled to open in the fall of 2020. Elementary #21 was approved by voters in the 2018 election as a step to help ease the crowding in schools on the District’s north end.
The road closure and detours will also be in effect during the same time periods Sept. 13-16.
