Restoration work (street or alley paving, sidewalks, ADA curb ramps, landscaping or lawn repair etc.) will generally be done on an ongoing basis during the remainder of the project. The schedule is subject to adjustment based on weather conditions, or other unexpected complications. Residents will be notified in advance of street or alley paving activities and related vehicle access and parking restrictions. Also, utility construction activities are underway at other locations related to gas main relocations by PSE. Drivers and pedestrians should be alert for traffic control signs and flaggers throughout the project area.

The primary objective of Sewer M phases 1 and 2 are to address chronic basement flooding problems mainly in the vicinity of Colby and Hoyt avenues and 15th Street but also in other locations nearby. New storm drainage pipes are being extended and catch basin inlets constructed at most intersections throughout this project. This new storm drainage network effectively separates stormwater runoff from the sewer collection system. In addition, the City is asking homeowners to disconnect rain gutter downspouts from their side sewer pipe wherever possible. Learn more about the downspout disconnect program.
