It’s been quite the process, but SE 129th is open! Crews began letting traffic through in the late afternoon of Feb. 14. Mayor Tom Ellis (second from right), Council President David Golobay (center), and Public Works Director Chris Randall (far left), met up with the lead engineers and design team to commemorate the occasion. This project has been an important one as it serves to increase visibility and travel safety for motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists. Though initially slated to be completed by end of Fall 2021, the project faced several delays due to supply chain challenges and bouts of inclement weather. Residents are asked to please keep in mind this stretch of roadway is still an active construction site and there may be intermittent delays due to construction flagging as some additional work is completed in the months ahead.
