King County's contractor finished the major work to install the new pipe on the morning of Monday, May 7. The County team recognizes that this work was around-the-clock and disruptive to the community. We deeply appreciate the patience neighbors showed the project team during this phase of the project.

With approximately 3,000 feet of new pipe installed between 32nd Avenue West and Smith Cove Park, crews will finish installing the remaining 50 feet of pipe early this week. Equipment on 32nd Avenue West will be cleaned and stored on 32nd Avenue West near Clise Place West for final removal from the area. 


  • Similar levels of noise and activity during normal working hours at Smith Cove Park
  • 2-way traffic restored on 32nd Avenue West south of Clise Place West after equipment is removed
  • No night work is currently scheduled
  • Traffic control and site security crews will remain on site at 32nd Avenue West until the final piece of pipe is installed and equipment is removed later this week
  • Increased noise from vacuum trucks on site during the week to clean out equipment
  • 32nd Avenue West remains closed from 33rd Avenue West to Clise Place West for equipment storage and removal

The project pipe (shown in red line above) connected the sewer system to a storage tank in Smith Cove Park. Once another pipe is installed, the Magnolia Wet Weather Facility will be back online, helping to protect Puget Sound water quality.
