A sewer pipe replacement project scheduled to get underway this week will restrict traffic along Bellevue Way Southeast near Interstate 90 and the Mercer Slough Nature Park.
A sewer pipe replacement project scheduled to get underway this week
will restrict traffic along Bellevue Way Southeast near Interstate 90
and the Mercer Slough Nature Park.
Beginning May 10, the
interior lane of southbound Bellevue Way Southeast will be closed from
9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Saturday while crews install and
connect 100 feet of new sewer pipe beneath the street. During
construction hours, there will be no northbound access to Bellevue Way
Southeast from 113 th Avenue Southeast. Traffic will instead be
detoured to 112 th Avenue Southeast.
The project is expected to last for about two weeks. Drivers should use
caution as there will be construction crews and heavy equipment in the
interior southbound lane of Bellevue Way Southeast and along the
shoulder of Bellevue Way south of the Sweyolocken Boat Launch access
The work is being carried out by King
County's Wastewater Treatment Division to add more capacity and to
ensure the existing sewer system continues to operate reliably.
More information about the project is available on the Web at http://dnr.metrokc.gov/wtd/projects/BellevueWay/index.htm or by calling the 24-hour construction hotline at 206-205-9196.
