For the Reporter

King County contractors will begin curb and gutter restoration for phase 2 on Monday and are continuing construction on phase 3 of the Stuck River Trunk pipeline.

The new sewer pipe will provide sufficient capacity to meet Auburn's needs through 2050 and reduce the chance of sewer backups into homes and streets.

Upcoming work:

Restoration activities between A Street Southeast and F Street Southeast begin Monday, Oct. 21. Crews will begin restoring curbs and gutters on the south side of 17th Street Southeast to City of Auburn standards (phase 2 on map below). Work is expected to last up to 3 weeks.

Individual driveway access may be restricted while building formwork and placing concrete for these structures. The contractor will notify affected individual residences of access limitations before closing a driveway.

Once curb and gutter work is complete, crews will begin paving activities for phase 2.

Continuing work:

Open trench sewer pipe installation on 17th Street Southeast continues. Crews are currently working on phase 3, F Street SE to K Street SE. Pipe installation for phase 3 is anticipated to be complete by mid-November and will be followed by restoration activities.

During construction hours, expect street parking limitations and lane restrictions in construction work areas. When work is occurring in front of driveways, crews will work with residents to maintain access.

What to expect during construction:

• Work hours from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays

• Single-lane closures in work areas during construction

• Parking and pedestrian restrictions

• Cones, signs and flaggers will be used to manage traffic flow and local access

• Extra travel time through work areas

• Noise and other activity typical of a construction site: work crews, dust, trucks, heavy machinery and excavating equipment
