Update (July 10) --
Dungeness Construction has delayed until July 22 the full road-closure it has planned for 111th Avenue, just north Northeast 141st Street.
The closure will continue until Aug. 19.
The Kirkland contractor began on June 26 the process of replacing a deteriorating 48-inch stormwater pipe with a 48-inch concrete box culvert.

WHAT: Kirkland will be closing 111th Avenue Northeast, just north of Northeast 141st Street, for 21 days while contracted crews replace a failing 48-inch steel stormwater pipe with a 12-foot-wide concrete box culvert.
The closure begins July 15 and will continue until Aug. 14.
WHY: The existing pipe is clogged with sediment, which reduces the flow of water through the pipe. This allows the sediment to pile up, eroding Juanita Creek’s bank and undermining the stability of the tree growing along it. It also prevents fish from migrating upstream. The new box culvert will alleviate these dynamics and allow fish to migrate from one side of the culvert to the other side.
WHEN: June 2019 - November 2019
WHAT TO EXPECT: The contractor will establish a detour route around the closed section of 111th Avenue Northeast. Northeast 141st Street will remain open.
