Construction begins early fall on sewer line upgrades beneath sections of Norkirk’s Fifth and Sixth streets. On Sixth Street, between 10th and 11th avenues, the City is replacing 325 linear feet of six-inch, concrete pipe with eight-inch PVC sewer line. On Fifth Street, between Central Way and Ninth Avenue, Kirkland is replacing more than 1,400 feet of deteriorating eight-inch concrete sewer line with an eight-inch PVC pipe.
The existing sewer pipes are nearing the end of their useful lives.
The contractor’s crews will be working between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday to Friday. Shoreline Construction expects to finish the upgrades and restoration by December. The design and permitting phase ended in September. City Council awarded the contract to Shoreline Construction on Sept. 5.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
The work will require one-block street closures. However, Shoreline Construction will ensure access for residents, mail delivery, waste management and emergency vehicles.
Shoreline Construction will cover or backfill unfinished work at the end of each day.
At the end of the project, Shoreline will repair the street sections with a permanent patch. In 2018, Kirkland’s annual overlay program will repave each of the affected sections.
Crews will replace existing landscaping with identical landscaping.
To access the manhole beneath the intersection of Fifth Street and Seventh Avenue, Shoreline’s crews will first have to deconstruct the traffic circle at that intersection. They will rebuild the traffic circle when they complete the project.
