Project area

1501_TILE_A1501_TILE_LEGEND_350

Work here will include pipe ramming under North Creek and open cut construction to tie the new pipe section into the existing one within 14th Drive Southeast. Pipe ramming below the creek bed minimize environmental disruption to North Creek. (More details about the work schedule and duration will be provided when available.)

Expected impacts:

  • Prior to construction, an access pit will need to be dug and dewatering and monitoring wells installed.
  • Pipe ramming under the creek will result in noise and vibrations.
  • Construction will include increased noise, dust, and vibrations.
  • Access to the work for construction vehicles and open cut work will be along 14th Drive Southeast.
  • There will be times when the street will be closed to through traffic. At other times some services such as mail delivery or school bus routes will need to be modified.

Work here will include pipe ramming under North Creek which is meant to minimize environmental disruption to the creek. (More details about the work schedule and duration will be provided when available.)

Expected impacts:

  • Prior to pipe ramming, an access pit will need to be dug and dewatering and monitoring wells installed.
  • Access to the pipe ramming pit on the east side of North Creek will be through multi-family complexes.
  • Construction will include increased traffic, noise, dust, and vibrations.

Updates:

Jan. 8, 2016 update  : on January 11, work began within the intersection of 208th Street Southeast and 14th Drive Southeast. This includes including partial and full closures of 14th Drive Southeast at this intersection.

1501_TILE_C_6501502_TILE_LEGEND

Pipe ramming will be used to bring the sewer line under 208th (SR-524) at 14th Drive; this will limit traffic disruptions. The pipe will then go east on the south side of 208th Street Southeast. Pipe ramming, tunneling and open trench work could all be used to install this portion of pipe. (More details about the work schedule and duration will be provided when available.)

Expected impacts:

  • Prior to construction, access pits will need to be dug and dewatering and monitoring wells installed.
  • Construction will include increased traffic, noise, dust, and vibrations.
  • Portions of the existing North Creek interceptor will no longer be needed and will be decommissioned..

June 25 project update  : June 27 information table at 208th Street Southeast and pipeline construction begins

May 20, 2015: King County’s contractor is completing an access road in the wetland / open space area along North Creek, between 208th Street Southeast and 214th Street Southeast. They have put in construction vehicle entrances with wheel washes and will be installing dewatering wells in the wetland areas. This is all in preparation for sewer pipeline construction which is scheduled to start in this area this summer.

The North Creek trail will be closed during construction.

Between 208th Street Southeast and 214th Street Southeast, the pipeline will be built using open trench methods. (More details about the work schedule and duration will be provided when available.)

Expected impacts:

  • Prior to construction access roads, work areas, and dewatering and monitoring wells will need to be installed.
  • Construction will include increased traffic, noise, dust, and vibrations.
  • Sections of the recently-constructed North Creek trail will need to be temporarily closed during construction.  
  • Disturbed areas of the trail and wetlands will be restored.
  • Portions of the existing North Creek interceptor will no longer be needed and will be decommissioned.

June 25 project update  : June 27 information table at 208th St SE and pipeline construction begins

March 2, 2015: beginning the week of March 2, King County’s contractor will begin installing erosion control and monitoring wells in the open space / wetland area adjacent to North Creek, west of Bothell Everett Highway (SR-527) between 214th Street Southeast and 208th Street Southeast.

The contractor will be accessing the wetlands via 208th, 214th, and from off of SR-527. Traffic will be down to one lane, with flaggers, in the work area along 214th. Work is expected to take up to three weeks to complete.

Tunneling will be used to build the pipe under the Bothell-Everett Highway and entering the Canyon Park Business Center at 214th Street Southeast. This will limit disruptions at this busy intersection. (More details about the work schedule and duration will be provided when available.)

Expected impacts:

  • Prior to construction access roads, work areas, and dewatering and monitoring wells will need to be installed.
  • Construction will include increased traffic, noise, dust, and vibrations.
  • Portions of the existing North Creek interceptor will no longer be needed and will be decommissioned.

Pipeline tunneling continues south from the corner of 214th Street Southeast and 20th Avenue Southeast. Just north of the 220th Street Southeast intersection, open trench construction will begin and extend south along 20th Avenue South, then east along 222nd and 223rd streets southeast.

Just before the pipeline reaches 29th Drive Southeast, tunneling will start again and the pipeline will turn south on private property, ending at an already-constructed section of the pipeline. (More details about the work schedule and duration will be provided when available.)

Expected impacts:

  • Both tunneling and open cut construction methods will be used to install the pipeline.
  • Work will be scheduled at night or on weekends at some of the busier intersections within the business center.
  • Prior to construction work areas, and dewatering and monitoring wells will need to be installed.
  • Construction will include increased traffic, noise, dust, and vibrations.
  • Some community transit stops will need to be closed temporarily and the buses re-routed.
  • Portions of the existing North Creek interceptor will no longer be needed and will be decommissioned.

June 9, 2016 update  : Canyon Park Business Center – road revisions and street closures, beginning as early as the week of June 13. Work is expected on 228th Street Southeast for 1–2 more weeks..

1501_TILE_G

A small section of work will take place in 228th Street Southeast where the new pipe will be connected to the existing pipeline. Work here will be done at night or on weekends to avoid impacting traffic. (More details about the work schedule and duration will be provided when available.)

Expected impacts:

  • Construction will involve a work area within 228th Street Southeast.
  • Work will be scheduled at night or on weekends to lessen traffic impacts.
  • Prior to construction dewatering and monitoring wells will need to be installed.
  • Construction will include increased traffic, noise, dust, and vibrations.
  • Some community transit stops will need to be closed temporarily and the buses re-routed.
  • Portions of the existing North Creek interceptor will no longer be needed and will be decommissioned.
