A water and sewer main upgrade project will require some lane-closures this fall on Kirkland Avenue, between 116th Avenue Northeast and Railroad Avenue. There, the City of Kirkland is planning to upgrade 1,500 linear feet of eight-inch concrete pipe to 12-inch ductile iron pipe. The City will also replace 1,550 linear feet of eight-inch concrete sewer pipe with 12-inch PVC pipe.
After installation, the contractor will patch and repave Kirkland Avenue.
: Kirkland’s project engineers are expecting the upgrade to begin by spring 2019 and to continue into until 2020. The contractor will work between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., and between Monday and Friday.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
The contractor will provide access for local residents, mail delivery, garbage pick-up and emergency vehicles.
One—or both—of Kirkland Avenue’s lanes will close at times.
Rain and forecasted rain will delay the paving schedule.
