Sitework to Begin on new River Run Apartment Project with Affordable Housing Component

River Run

The City of North Bend has issued a Clearing and Grading permit for the new River Run Apartment project.

This multi-family housing development is located south of Chinook Lumber at the corner of 436th Ave SE and SE 136th Street, and will consist of 128-units in 11 buildings with one additional building containing a clubhouse/office space. Approximately 28 of the new apartments will be designated as affordable housing for households earning 80% or less of the King County Area Median Income (AMI).

Sitework is expected to commence this week at the nearly 6-acre land parcel. Later this year, a new roundabout will be constructed at the intersection of 436th Ave SE and SE 136th Street. This developer-funded roundabout will be constructed to mitigate potential future traffic impacts. No taxpayer dollars are being spent on this traffic improvement project. 

During sitework, traffic delays should be anticipated. Residents of the immediate vicinity should anticipate noise and limited, short-term vibration during project construction. 

Traffic control and associated signage will be provided at all times during construction in the public right-of-way. Drivers should plan for single lane closures and short delays. 

Normal construction hours will be 7AM to 7PM, Monday thru Friday, and some Saturdays, 9AM to 5PM, as permitted by City Municipal Code. No work will be allowed on Sundays or City observed holidays.

The project received its concurrency certificates - thus reserving water and sewer capacity - in 2018.  The water concurrency certificate was issued by Sallal Water Association and the sewer concurrency certificate was issued by the City of North Bend. 

The City apologizes for any inconveniences this work may cause and thanks residents for their patience and understanding.

For construction related questions, please contact Brian Tucker at btucker@northbendwa.gov. All other inquiries should be directed to Jamie Burrell at jburrell@northbendwa.gov
