Covington residents should be on the look out for construction on 164th Avenue Southeast starting Monday, Aug. 26.

The city started the 164th Avenue Southeast Pedestrian Improvements Project with some temporary signs and striping the previous week. Between 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 26, and Tuesday, Aug. 27, crews will be taking down trees, which will cause lane closures and possible delays.

“We ask drivers to use alternative routes if possible,” the city stated on its Facebook page. The project is estimated to be completed by December.
