From the letters:

PROJECT:  Many of the sanitary sewer lines in the City of Seattle are at least 50 years
old and they are showing the wear expected of infrastructure of that age.  A contractor
for Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) will reline the sewer line in your neighborhood as part
of citywide sewer line rehabilitation efforts.

BENEFITS:  Repairing pipes can help prevent future service disruption caused by a
sewer line break.

DATES/TIMES:  The project is expected to start in early February and extend into
March.  The project consists of two parts: cleaning and relining. First, the pipes will be
cleaned a few weeks prior to the relining work.  Then the reline work at each site will
last approximately one to two days.  General working hours will be 7:30 a.m. to 4:00
p.m., Monday through Friday, with the possibility of occasional weekend work.
However, working hours may be shortened to 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in order to
minimize traffic disruptions on arterial streets.



  • Access to street and/or parking will be limited; at the end of each working day, access to each site will be restored to allow for regular traffic
  • On-street parking may be temporarily reduced
  • Increased construction truck traffic and some noise, dirt, and vibrations are likely
