Bothell completes most of sewer main replacement

BOTHELL - In an effort to provide the highest quality sewer system, the City of Bothell completed a major portion of its latest sewer main replacement project. The City's sanitary sewer main replacement work is on Northeast 195th Street and eastbound lanes are re-opened. During the five-week street closure, contractor C.A. Goodman Construction Company finished underground replacement work and repaved the eastbound lanes on Northeast 195th Street. The replacement work was identified as a high priority by the City as there was an existing 16-inch diameter pipe that sunk up to 12 inches in places and was in danger of failure.
   "This has been quite a successful project," said City Manager Jim Thompson. "The City is dedicated to improving its systems in the most timely and cost-effective manner, and this project is another perfect example of that dedication."
   While most of the work is finished, there is remaining work to be completed that begins on Thursday, October 5th. This work includes installation of traffic signal detection sensors and new street-markings. Single-lane closures on Northeast 195th Street will be necessary to accommodate this work and are expected to last until Friday, October 6th.
