Irving Ave N Sanitary Sewer Replacement

The City will replace 2010 feet of sanitary sewer in two phases starting fall of 2020. This will improve sanitary flow and reduce groundwater infiltration into the sewer.

The project is in the design phase. We will also do outreach to inform the public on project schedule and staging. 

Project overview

The new sanitary sewer will be parallel to the existing sewer. It's location is along Irving Ave N from Currie Ave W through Bryn Mawr Meadows park to Laurel Ave W and Morgan Ave S. Construction will happen in two phases. Phase one will occur along Irving Ave N starting in fall of 2020. Phase two construction will be along Bryn Mawr Meadows park to Laurel Ave W and Morgan Ave S.

The new sanitary sewer will improve sanitary flow and reduce groundwater infiltration into the sewer. It will also provide capacity for the planned development in the area. The original part of the sewer was built along Irving Ave N in 1905. Over the years, poor soils have caused the sewer to settle leading us to reconstruct portions of it. The new sanitary sewer will be constructed on a deeper foundation to reduce future maintenance due to settlement.

Phase 2 project schedule is in the planning phase. We will post details when they are available.

Traffic and area impacts

Traffic impacts will include the closure of Irving Ave N between Currie Ave and Bassett Creek with access provided for local business. The Luce Line bike trail will also be detoured within Bryn Mawr Meadows park for a portion of the project.

There will be noise and vibration caused by the need for the sewer to have stronger support. We will be using piling, which is a type of structural support.
