Water System Improvement Project



Update (Nov. 6, 2019) -- Shoreline Construction is putting back Third Street’s manhole covers and utility lids this week. Flaggers will direct traffic around the work zones. The contractor plans to remove its equipment and crews from the work site by Friday. When weather permits, its crews will establish the street’s permanent travel lanes.

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. 

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.

Design: January 2019 - May 2019
Advertise for bid: May 2019 - June 2019
Construction: August 2019 - November 2019
