Update (April 15) -- Kirkland's Sixth Street water main contractor is an estimated two non-consecutive days from completing the installation of a quarter-mile-long section of water main, from Central Way to Kirkland Avenue.
Kar-Vel Construction's crews will be working in Second Avenue to connect the new 12-inch water main in Sixth Street to the existing eight-inch main that runs beneath Second Avenue. To achieve this, crews will shut down water service to select properties along Second Avenue. Those affected will receive two-days notice.
Why: Customer-demand for water will soon exceed the 8-inch concrete pipe’s capacity.
What to expect: Traffic control and flagging operations will be in effect. Short delays are possible during construction.
- The City of Kirkland requires the contractor to backfill and/or cover trenches and other unfinished work at the end of each day.
- Access for mail delivery, garbage pick-up and emergency vehicles will be maintained.
- The City of Kirkland will notify residents of any disruptions to water services prior to the disruption.
