2009-2010 Water Main Replacement Program 

Vicinity Map

Project Overview: EW-0176Preconstruction

The 2009 Water Main Replacement project is part of an annual program to replace aging water mains that are at the end of their lifecycle and require upgrades.  The 2009-2010 project consists of removing and replacing 2.5 blocks of 1928 cast iron pipe along 12th Street from McKenzie Avenue to Old Fairhaven Parkway and two blocks along Cowgill from 10th to 12th streets.. After the pipe is replaced, pavement resurfacing from Mill Avenue to the Padden Creek bridge will complete the project.  Concrete will be placed in the heavily used bus stop segment. Minor sewer rehabilitation will take place as manholes are repaired. See the construction flyer for additional information.


Update - September 2011

Accomplishments: Completed the second surfacing of the failed asphalt, and contractor completed raising iron to grade and pavement markings. Final walk through inspection held on 8/4/11. Completed punch list and close out.
