See Project Description to learn more details about the project and to sign up for construction updates.
King County has completed final design for the project. A contractor has been selected and is expected to start work in early 2015. The project should take about two years to complete.
Construction will include building 10,000 feet of pipe along a two-mile route from above 208th Street Southeast in Snohomish County on the north end of the project to 228th Street Southeast in Bothell on the south.
There will be a number of different types of activities at various work sites. King County will work closely with businesses, residents and the community in each area of work.
Need for project
The North Creek Interceptor is an important part of the regional wastewater system that serves portions of Bothell, Mill Creek and unincorporated Snohomish County. It carries flows from local jurisdictions to King County treatment plants. Construction will improve the sewer lines by providing additional capacity and needed upgrades to ensure safe and reliable operations for the future.
Being a good neighbor
King County is committed to being a good neighbor and will work directly with the community throughout the project to minimize construction impacts whenever possible. Residents can expect:
Advance notice of construction activities – mail, email, phone, door hangers
One-on-one problem solving with residents directly impacted by construction activities
Construction updates and news via notices, emails, and this website.
