Project Update: Pipe Installation Schedule

King County’s contractor has been preparing for pipe installation at the construction areas on 32nd Avenue West as part of the Magnolia Wet Weather Storage Facility at Smith Cove Park project. Pipe installation is now scheduled to start as early as Wednesday, April 4. The schedule and duration for installation may change. We will notify neighbors if the schedule changes.

Crews must install the pipe without stopping and will work around the clock for up to 4 days once installation begins.

King County’s Community Services team is working with residents in the area as we approach this critical work. You can visit the city project

If You Are Not A Resident In The Project Area

There will be limited access on 32nd Avenue West during pipe installation, and intermittent traffic delays of up to 2 hours when pipe is being installed. There is already limited parking space on 32nd Avenue West, and neighbors will need this space.

Parking is also limited in surrounding areas, including 33rd Avenue West and Wolfe Street. Closure of the parking lane on Clise Place West will mean some residents must park in the neighborhood away from their homes.

Please be considerate of the project neighbors who are affected by this work. You can view the project from the Howe Street Bridge.

Important Notices To Neighbors

There will be delays up to 2 hours on 32nd Avenue West during pipe bursting. Crews will be moving equipment in the area.

Please contact us if you are a resident in the area and need to be up to date on delays. We will work with you to keep you informed during this work.

Parking will be removed on the west side of Clise Pl. W.

There will be construction noise around-the-clock during the pipe bursting.

Lighting will be used after dark in the work area. Crews will angle lights to reduce impact to neighbors.
