Downtown

What’s happening now?

The City of Renton is moving forward with construction projects to enhance downtown Renton as a destination.  Work started on April 26, 2020 and construction is expected to continue into early 2021. Now through summer, you can expect:

  • Typical work hours: Weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. with occasional noise, dust and vibration.

  • Temporary single-lane closures: Traffic will periodically be reduced to a single lane on South Third Street and South Second Street as crews upgrade the utilities. Please plan ahead for delays.

  • Minor parking restrictions: There may be some on-street parking restrictions near work zones; please follow directions on “No parking” signs.

  • Pedestrian detours

  • Temporary utility impacts: Service interruptions will be minor; utility providers will notify properties in advance of any temporary service disruptions that will impact them
