(Jan. 20) -- The contractor will begin working Saturdays, between 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., starting January 21. Work will occur at the park site Monday-Saturday until the park is complete.
(Dec. 29) -- The completion date for the 132nd Square Park has been set for spring. This time frame will allow the asphalt parking lot to be properly installed (in the proper temperatures) and the landscape hydroseed will be able to germinate without sprouting and dying due to freezing conditions. The project work elements are all closely intertwined with the weather, but progress is being made every day.
(Sept 1) -- The City and our contractor have recently agreed on the number of days that the exceptionally wet winter/spring have added to the contract, since the moisture in the soil affected leveling and in-ground work throughout the site. These are contractual requirements stipulated in the original contract documents for uncontrollable weather events that has directly impacted work. This pushes the completion of the park past the initially anticipated reopening schedule of mid-September. The park will be open at the soonest possible date
, but definitely by the end of the year.
(May 27) -- The restroom building is taking shape in the middle of the park, and the black poles you see around the field are for the multi-use field fencing. The stormwater system, the impetus for this project, will soon be back-filled to be a firm and unyielding subsurface for the athletic field, and in the coming months the installation of the synthetic turf is scheduled to begin. The construction is expected to be complete this summer, likely in late September.
(Apr 21) -- Our contractor will be working in NE 132nd Street starting Monday, April 25 to build a new waterline to serve the park. Woodinville Water will contact those who's water service will be impacted.
