Downtown Renton Construction: Temporary two-way cul-de-sac on Wells Ave S

DT Construction Header



As part of the ongoing utility work, we plan to test and connect to an existing water main on S 2nd St. Given the complexity of this work, we’re planning to expand the work zone starting tomorrow. During this work, Wells Ave S will temporarily operate as a two-way cul-de-sac between S 2nd St and S 3rd St to maintain access to local businesses.

In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to call 425-363-1007 if you have questions or you need assistance with large deliveries.

What does local and business access mean?

Anyone can still drive and park on the block leading up to the intersection. You just can’t drive through the intersection.
