Kent drivers can expect intermittent lane closures for more than two years along West Meeker Street, just east of the Meeker Street Bridge, for construction of a the new Marquee on Meeker apartments.
The closures will be from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday from now to Sept. 30, 2020. Nearly 500 apartments will be built at the site of the city’s former Riverbend par 3 golf course.
There will be heavy truck traffic in the area until mid-year 2020, according to a Public Works update. Trucks will access the new development on the south side of Meeker Street at the former par 3 course. Traffic control will be in place. Drivers are advised to use alternate routes.
