Stormwater Improvements – East 18th Street, between Larsen Way and General Anderson
In November, construction crews began work to install a bioretention stormwater facility and stormwater treatment inlets on East 18th Street, between Larsen Way and General Anderson Avenue. This construction includes adding plants and other minor work. Funding for this project comes from the Washington State Department of Ecology’s 2012 Stormwater Retrofit and LID Competitive Grant program and the cty. The project aims to improve water quality along Burnt Bridge Creek. In general, construction will occur from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, but construction could continue as late as 8 p.m. and could take place on weekends. The work is expected to be finished as weather conditions improve. Please note that this work will impact the westbound bike lane on 18th Street, so drivers are especially urged to be alert to bikes sharing the travel lane. Drivers, pedestrians and cyclists should exercise caution in construction zones and watch for construction workers, equipment, lane changes and possible traffic delays.
