Darin Baker, an operator with Lakeside Industries, compacts on Wednesday afternoon the final layer of asphalt on Northeast 120th Street. The subcontractor paved in two days the 900-foot road extension, which connects 124th Avenue Northeast to Slater Avenue Northeast. The focus of Kirkland’s 120th Street contractor now returns to finishing the sidewalk on the north side of the road, as well as installing handrails, traffic signals and signs. The contractor is on schedule to stripe the road’s two through-lanes, center turn lane and bike lanes by December.
