Advanced Stormwater Utility Relocation: Phase 1 to start as early as April 29, 2015

Starting as early as April 29, 2015, Sound Transit's contractor will begin utility work near the NE Spring Blvd and 136th Pl NE intersection in Bellevue. Once underway, work will occur in three phases and last approximately three months. Impacts will mostly be limited to parking on property north of the intersection during phases one and two. You may see traffic impacts from temporary single-lane closures during phase three.

The stormwater utility work is one of a series of advanced utility relocations in Bel-Red by Sound Transit and multiple utility providers as Sound Transit prepares for East Link construction. Sound Transit's utility work will be followed by Olympic Pipeline Company's (OPLC) utility relocation in this area beginning in the summer. Other utility providers performing relocations in Bel-Red include Puget Sound Energy and various telecommunications companies.

Your service provider will notify you directly of work affecting your property.

What to expect during stormwater utility relocation:

  • Work hours: Monday - Friday 7:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
  • Access to driveways will be maintained at all times.
  • Saw cutting pavement will create intermittent noise.
  • The work site will be safe and secure at all times.

Phase 1 - Duration: About 3 weeks

  • About 15 parking stalls blocked by work area

Phase 2 - Duration: About 2 weeks

  • About 8 parking stalls blocked by work area

Phase 3 - Duration: About 2 weeks
