LAKE WILDERNESS GOLF COURSE UPDATE:

Dave Johnson, Parks & Recreation Director/Asst City Manager provided a golf course update –

The Governor allowed Golf Courses in Washington to re-open on May 5th with a number of Social Distancing measures in place, including limiting play to twosomes.  We were very excited to be able to re-open LGWC on that day, as were the golfers.  The tee sheet was completely full for the first few days.  On May 16th, the Governor loosened those measures to allow non-related foursomes to play

On the Clubhouse side of things, the City team has continued to meet (virtually) with our design consultant.  Some folks may be interested to know that it is the same consultant that designed the beautiful Maple Valley Library.  In any case, the conceptual design process for the clubhouse has proceeded and we are nearing the end of that phase and hope to present to Council sometime this summer

WITTE RD T-28B PHASE 2 – TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT PLAN:

Tawni Dalziel, Community Development, Public Works Director provided a Witte Rd update –

The City Council recently approved a change in our planned construction on Witte this summer.  Primarily because we believe the federal government will issue a federal infrastructure stimulus package in the next six months, the City Council has decided to further phase the Witte project in order to apply for that funding.  This summer, the City only plans to complete the undergrounding of overhead utilities and relocate a water main that conflicts with the road improvements.  Next summer, the City will come back and complete walls, sidewalks, fish passage culvert, and road widening that will necessitate a full road closure at that time

For this summer, because of this phasing, we will not be fully closing Witte Road.  Traffic will be controlled by flaggers through the work zone on Witte and we will not have a detour through Lake Wilderness County Club Drive.  We do plan a commuter detour around Kent Kangley and Maple Valley Highway during the construction do try to reduce the traffic delays through the work zone

We are planning the work to start in July and go through October.  We are in the process of updating our project website with this information

For any questions or issues during the Witte Rd. T-28B construction, please reach out to Tawni – Tawni.Dalziel@maplevalleywa.gov.
