TULALIP – The Tulalip Tribes are working on road improvements that will include a two-lane roundabout on Marine Drive at 31st Avenue as part of the new Quil Ceda Creek Casino project.
The roundabout is taking the place of the traffic light there. Tribes ask that motorists use caution and follow advisory signs until that part of the project is complete in January of 2019.
Along with the roundabout, there will be sidewalk lighting, accessibility for people with disabilities and other improvements.
As for the new casino itself, which hopes to open next summer, construction also has begun for underground utilities.
South of its current location, the casino will double in size, include a new hotel and parking garage, and have 1,200 additional parking spaces.
