Messy and disruptive sewer pipe installation planned along parts of West Lake Sammamish Blvd and River Trail

In last night's Council meeting Jennifer Kaufman, King County Waste Water Division, reported on their need for sewer pipe construction upgrades in west Redmond -- called the "Lake Hills & NW Sammamish" project.  The project will start in 2018 and continue for three years.

The pipe construction project will start at City Hall and run 4.5 miles -- along parts of West Lake Sammamish Blvd, the Sammamish River trail, and in some neighborhoods. A section of the pipe was built in l959 and will be replaced and the new pipe will be larger for increased capacity.

Council members Allen and Stilin had concerns about traffic mitigation.  Council President Margeson thanked Ms. Kaufman for the advance notice and asked the public for comments.  Can you imagine the mess and disruption? Again, the project will be ongoing for three years!
