The City of Kent announced on Thursday, Aug. 9 that construction on East James Street has been completed, and the road has re-opened.

The road was first closed July 21 for paving from Central Avenue to Jason Avenue.

However, please note that there will be temporary lane closures for road striping, tentatively scheduled for the end of the month.

“Thank you for your patience as we work to improve the City’s roads, and congratulations to the hardworking team that made it happen ahead of schedule!”
