Story

With major construction on King County’s Kirkland Pump Station now complete, Park Lane between Main Street and Third Street in the city’s downtown core will reopen to two-way traffic starting today.

The road was used as a staging area since construction on the pump station began in September 2011. Though crews are still completing finishing touches on the pump station, King County made it a priority to reopen the street.

King County restored the road to fit in with the flexible, plaza-style street design that City of Kirkland is planning for Park Lane from Lake Street to Third Street.

King County’s $20 million pump station project will ensure safe, reliable wastewater operations for the City of Kirkland’s growing population. The new, larger capacity pump station will comply with current seismic codes, operate more quietly and efficiently, and employ state-of-the-art odor control.

Additional information is also available on the project website at http://www.kingcounty.gov/environment/wtd/Construction/East/Kirkland.aspx or by calling the construction hotline at 206-205-9196.
