Water, sewer system improvement work begins around city

By Nicholas Johnson | Mar 15, 2017

Depending on weather, work was set to begin Monday, March 13, on three water and sewer improvement projects in the city that are expected to affect traffic.

The Mukilteo Water and Wastewater District has awarded a contract for its 2017 improvements projects to Bellingham-based Strider Construction.

The first project involves replacing a water main on Lamar Drive and Debrelon Lane in northeast Mukilteo near the Boulevard Bluff neighborhood.

Short-term road closures are expected on parts of Lamar Drive, between its westerly connection to 5th Street and where it turns southerly uphill.

Residents accessing Lamar Drive and Debrelon Lane will maintain access to 5th Street at the Easterly connection, by the bridge, during the closure.

The second project involves installing a sewer main by Directional Bore between Sunset Lane and Surrey Lane off of 92nd Street Southwest. Short-term road closures are expected on Sunset Lane just north of 92nd Street.

Access options for the few residences on the dead end of Sunset Lane are yet to be determined.

The third project involves installing a new sewer main under railroad tracks near Mukilteo Lane and Loveland Avenue in north Mukilteo. That project is expected to require temporary single-lane closures.

The traffic lanes temporarily closed during construction will have flaggers helping to direct traffic around the work zones.

There will also be temporary, short-term loss of parking as equipment is in use and pipes are installed along the streets.

Contact Operations and Engineering Manager Rick Matthews at rickm@mukilteowwd.org or 425-355-3355 with any questions or concerns.

Project updates will be available periodically at www.mukilteowwd.org.
