Most of the work will take place on the southwest corner of the intersection. However, the relocation could require some work on the southeast corner, as well as one night of work in Kirkland Avenue’s intersection with Main Street. That night is March 19 to March 20.
Update (Feb. 13, 2024) -- Fifth Avenue South, between Sixth and Seventh streets south remains closed this week while a Kirkland contractor upgrades the water main beneath the street. Eighth Street South is open, but reduced to one lane, with alternative traffic.
The path that links Seventh and Eighth streets south remains closed, as well.
The contractor, Strickland and Sons, will re-open the path in the spring when its crews complete the water main upgrades.
