UTILITY WORK ALERT: Sewer repairs on 35th SW starting next Tuesday


Seattle Public Utilities says it will be repairing a sewer line along 35th SW between Juneau and Raymond starting next Tuesday (May 31st). The flyer it’s circulating in the area says, “The mainline at this location is damaged and requires replacement. Homes and businesses will continue to receive normal service during the repair.” They expect the work, at five spots on the line (shown above), to take about two weeks, with crews there 7 am-4 pm weekdays. While service will continue, there will be mobility effects, including parking restrictions, limited access to driveways during construction work hours, and the closure of “the center two lanes of 35th SW” while the work is under way.

    Looking forward to more shoddily patched utility holes in the road. I had a system/mental map in place to swerve around 35th ave SW lanes to minimize the back breaking jarring from the road. Now, I’m going to have come up with a new system to swerve around the s*&tshow after this.  How many decades till they rebuild some parts (but not all of) 35th after the levy?

      If you look at the flyer, it does say that metal plates will cover the spots where they’re working until they’re done.

        My concern is what will be done after the metal plates are removed. As usual, shoddy tarmac patches will be left behind creating  new permanent potholes and uneven surfaces for the next 5-7 years. It will just make the pothole/bad patch avoidance unsafe swerving video game we have to play on 35th  more interesting. 

        (And reporting any shoddy work to SDOT is futile. They barely repair potholes. Any quality improvements don’t meet their bar of doing work.)

          Yeah, seriously.  The patch they put in at 22nd SW and SW Andover is terrible-like a speed bump almost.

    I must have missed the flyer.  Thanks for the notice!

Sorry, comment time is over.
