The City of Kennewick will be removing and replacing the existing pavement surface on the following streets. 

This work will also include the removal and replacement of a significant number of pedestrian ramps at street intersections. 

• W. Gage Blvd – N. Steptoe St. to N. Center Parkway 

• W. Okanogan PL – N. Columbia Center Blvd to W. Quinault Ave. 

• W. 10th Ave. – S. Columbia Center Blvd. to S. Kellogg St. 

Project Schedule 

This project is scheduled to begin on June 27th and is estimated to be complete end of September 2022. What to Expect The construction of this project will require the use of large construction equipment and will require the closure of multiple lanes of travel on weekdays between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. 

While the contractor is replacing pedestrian ramps, temporary pedestrian detours will be in place. For your safety, please follow the posted detours. 

Extended delays are to be expected during the planing (removal of the existing pavement) and paving operations, however, access to driveways and side streets will be maintained at all times with only temporary impacts. The planing and paving operation is scheduled to take place at night between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. at the end of July.
