Hi everyone,

The Renton Farmers Market is hitting its mid-summer stride and is in full swing every Tuesday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Local vendors, live music, and free food samples are available at the market. Check out what the market has to offer and how to navigate from the free parking at the City Center Parking Garage to the market:

1. Sidewalk work on S 2nd St at Williams Ave S and Wells Ave S

Our concrete subcontractor has poured the sidewalks on the southside of S 2nd St at Wells Ave S. The concrete subcontractor plans to continuing pouring new curb and gutters and sidewalk on S 2nd St.

People walking will be detoured into adjacent curbside parking and have their path distinguished by using “hurdles” and traffic cones.

After pouring a concrete panel, crews continue preparing the remaining panels for concrete by building the forms that hold the concrete.

2. Construction continues on S 2nd St and S 3rd St

We’re continuing utility work on S 2nd St and other work on S 3rd St, including installing irrigation, landscaping, finalizing the signals, and eventually repaving.

Through traffic on both S 2nd St and S 3rd St will continue to be reduced to a single-lane to avoid confusion at the all-way stops.

3. Sewer Utility Work on S 3rd St

DUIP continues installation of the new sewer main. Installation has been moving well and we’ve made good progress on the work between Whitworth Ave S and Shattuck Ave S. We completed paving and restoration work between Burnett Ave S and Morris Ave S.

4. Shattuck Ave S Intersection Work and S 3rd St Road Closure

Sewer work on S 3rd Street is progressing healthily and ahead of schedule. Through early next week, the intersection of Shattuck Ave S and S 3rd St will be closed for sewer utility work. S 3rd St from Shattuck Ave S to Rainier Ave S will also be closed as the sewer installation proceeds toward Rainier Ave S.

S 3rd Street will re-open to business and local access after construction hours. A detour to S 4th St via S 3rd Pl to Shattuck Ave S is in place to route traffic around construction. Signage for local and business access will be in place along the detour route.

Once intersection work at S 3rd St & Shattuck Ave S is complete, we will move forward with road restoration on S 3rd St between Morris Ave S and Shattuck Ave S. Paving is planned for the first week of August and will allow us to re-open access to S 3rd St between Shattuck Ave S and Burnett Ave S. Please follow posted signs and directions from flaggers for safe access. 

5.  Utility Work on S 3rd St and Rainier Ave S

DUIP is wrapping up the installation of the steel casing within the box culvert and will be out of the intersection by early next week.

In a few weeks, we will return to and do night work to install the sewer main from the S 3rd St through Rainier Ave S. This work is anticipated for 3-5 nights. Anticipate “permanent” lane reductions in all directions during work hours until this phase of the work is done. Please follow posted signs and directions from flaggers for safe access.

Storm Utility work on S 2nd St

In a few weeks, DUIP will be doing storm utility work on S 2nd St between Morris Ave S and Shattuck Ave S. We will begin at S 2nd St and Shattuck Ave S and move east towards Morris Ave S. During construction, S 2nd St will be reduced to two lanes on the south side of the street.
