WHAT: A project to reinforce 3,050 linear feet of stormwater pipe beneath Market Street begins late June. The project reinforces a pair of concrete stormwater pipes that have degraded with age and root-intrusion. The contractor will also reinforce six manholes and reconnect nine lateral lines. Kirkland’s contractor will employ a construction technique that eliminates the need for a trench, except at the project’s two end-points on Central Way and 12th Avenue.
WHEN: The contractor will close Market Street one block at a time, beginning at 6 a.m. and ending at 3 p.m., Monday through Friday.
WHAT TO EXPECT: The project will require the contractor to dig two holes at Market Street’s intersections with Central Way and 12th Avenue. Construction begins early summer and ends in the fall.
The contractor will maintain access for local residents, mail delivery, garbage pick-up and emergency vehicles.
