Nighttime sewer line relocation on 1st Ave NE

Publish Date

Starting as early May 1, Sound Transit's contractor Absher Construction Company will start the relocation of a sewer line on 1st Avenue Northeast. The relocation is necessary to continue drilled shaft and column work. Crews will install the line at night to keep traffic moving in the area. This project is expected to take approximately one month to complete.
