Work almost finished on downtown North Bend street extension
September 29, 2010
Work is almost finished on North Bend’s extension of Downing Avenue North from East Second Street to East North Bend Way.
The street should open by early October, according to Ron Garrow, North Bend’s public works director.
Two houses stood where the new street runs just east of the QFC parking lot. The city purchased both houses. One was demolished and the other was moved to East Fourth Street and Sydney Avenue North.
The road extension project, which cost about $430,000, will improve traffic circulation, Garrow said.
That better movement will also mean fewer cars will drive past nearby North Bend Elementary School.
