WHAT: A City of Kirkland contractor begins upgrading the Third Street water main on Aug. 26.
Shoreline Construction is replacing the existing eight-inch concrete pipe with a 12-inch ductile iron pipe between Central Way and Seventh Avenue.
WHAT TO EXPECT: To install the new water main, crews will dig trenches along Third Street. The contract allows the contractor to close both lanes of each road to through-traffic. Emergency, mail and residential traffic will have access. The work will also temporarily eliminate some side-street parking.
The City of Kirkland requires the contractor to backfill and/or cover trenches and other unfinished work at the end of each day.
