Kirkland Avenue Water & Sewer Replacement Project


WHAT: Rodarte Construction plans to close Kirkland Avenue Aug. 5 to Aug. 9 while it grinds and repaves the street between Railroad Avenue and 116th Avenue Northeast. The City’s contractor will close one lane of Kirkland Avenue on Aug. 3 (and 4 if needed) while it prepares the street for the repaving process and on Aug. 8 while it puts back the street’s manhole covers and other utility lids.

Rodarte will repave the street in two sections—from Railroad Avenue to Slater Street and from Slater Street to 116th Avenue Northeast. Repaving Kirkland Avenue is the last major task Rodarte must complete before finishing the water and sewer main upgrade it began in late March.

WHEN:  Rodarte Construction will continue working from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, to complete the paving. Rodarte plans to restripe Kirkland Avenue’s lanes on Aug. 9.

Flaggers will direct non-local traffic around the work zone. 
The contractor will maintain access for local residents, mail delivery, garbage pick-up and emergency vehicles.
