UTILITY WORK ALERT: North Delridge sewer project starts Monday

Received today from Seattle Public Utilities, word that work starts next week on a sewer-system project in North Delridge. The notice:

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) is making improvements to a sewer-system flow control station located in the Delridge neighborhood. This project will enable SPU to optimize use of the sewer system with the goal of reducing combined sewer overflows (CSOs) into the Duwamish River.

LOCATION: Construction will take place in the Delridge neighborhood at the intersection of SW Andover Street and 26th Avenue SW. See map for approximate location of work.

SCHEDULE: Construction is scheduled to begin Monday, May 13, and it will take about 3 to 5 months to complete the work. Typical work hours will be Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., but weekend work may be required. Please note that weather and other factors may impact start date and duration of this project.

ANTICIPATED IMPACTS: During construction, you can expect:
• Construction noise, dust, and vibrations.
• Increased construction traffic and staging of large equipment in the area.
• Slowed vehicle traffic and intermittent lane closures near the construction area.
• Parking in or near the work area may be prohibited. o “No Parking” signs will be posted in advance of work. Please park in an alternative area, if needed.
• Pedestrian traffic on the north side of S.W. Andover Street near the work area will be restricted throughout construction. Pedestrian detours will be in place.
• Restoration of pavement and vegetation will occur following construction.

    So, Delridge AND Avalon will be torn up at the same time? GREAT! Not.

      This is at 26th and Andover, not on Delridge.

      While it is Andover and not Delridge specifically, it does have significant impacts to those living between Avalon and Delridge who need access to the bridge. Traffic is already rerouting heavily through the neighborhood streets here with the Avalon construction and this will add to that.

    Great, another reduction of the options to get around the 35th/Avalon cluster.  Andover’s a major back door into/out-of the neighborhood used by many, many people.  Looks like SPU can’t resist getting in on the party.  Is it time for major powerline maintenance along Delridge yet? Probably not too late to squeeze it in!  Maybe PSE could dig up a large gas line across Fauntleroy next.

    Wait…isn’t Andover a detour to get from Avalon to Delridge? 

  • WSmom May 12, 2019 (12:40 pm)

    Is Avalon and Genessee back open?

Sorry, comment time is over.
