Sweet Road Construction to Begin

Press Release - August 8, 2017

The City of Blaine Public Works Department wishes to inform the public that Colacurcio Brothers Construction, under contract with the City of Blaine, will be replacing a water main, adding new sidewalk and reconstructing Sweet Road from Yew Avenue east to the city limits. The project will begin August 14th, and is anticipated to take 2 months to complete. Drivers can anticipate delays throughout construction.

The project is the first of what will be a complete reconstruction west to the railroad tracks, but the rest of the work will take place next year. The project is funded entirely with state grant funding from the Transportation Improvement Board. “We are excited to see these long-awaited improvements finally get started” remarks Ravyn Whitewolf, Public Works Director for the city. 

The City of Blaine Public Works Department provides this information as a public service. It is based on currently available information. Motorists are reminded that weather and road conditions can change rapidly and should plan accordingly. When traveling through a construction area, drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians are asked to be patient, proceed with caution and obey flaggers at all times. Planned road closures and restrictions are necessary to allow for a variety of work including resurfacing, sidewalk construction, water and sewer main work, and utility cuts. Dates, times and work locations are subject to change due to inclement weather or last-minute changes in work schedules.
