King County's contractor has moved into restoration activities now that approximately 3,000 feet of new pipe is installed between 32nd Avenue West and Smith Cove Park. While construction activities are a lot more limited than during pipe fusion and the pipe pull, people can still expect activity in the project area. 


  • Work hours from 7 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. during the week; we will provide notification of any after-hours or weekend work.
  • Two-way traffic maintained on 32nd Avenue West, with occasional, brief traffic delays for truck turnaround and equipment movement.
  • Staging will remain in Smith Cove Park to support ongoing work to connect the new pipe to the existing system.

The project pipe (shown in red line above) connected the sewer system to a storage tank in Smith Cove Park. Another pipe has been installed and once crews have connected it, the Magnolia Wet Weather Facility will be back online, helping to protect Puget Sound water quality.
