Downtown Bellevue sewer projects to begin July 9

The city is planning four downtown sewer projects in July and August to meet the growth needs of Bellevue’s Central Business District.

Over the next 20 years, Bellevue's downtown population is projected to increase by 9,000 residents and the downtown commercial sector is predicted to expand by 28,000 jobs. 

Crews will remove existing pipe and replace it with new, larger pipe, install new pipe to divert flows to a pipe with higher capacity, or repair existing pipe.

All businesses will be open during construction, and access will be provided where safely possible. Residents and businesses can expect construction noise and traffic impacts, which will include road and lane closures and detours around the work sites.

Please follow marked detours and drive safely at the following locations:
• Main Street and 106th Avenue NE: Work will begin Monday, July 9, and will take approximately one week to complete. 
• NE 2nd Street and 112th Avenue: Work will begin Monday, July 16, and should take three to four days to complete.
• NE 8th Street and Bellevue Way: Work will begin Friday evening, Aug. 17, and continue around the clock through the weekend until completed, possibly by early Monday morning. Grinding and repaving will be done at the intersection on Tuesday evening, Aug. 21.
• NE 8th Street and 106th Avenue NE: Work will begin Friday, Aug. 24, and continue around the clock until completed, possibly by early Monday morning. Grinding and repaving work at the intersection will be done on Tuesday evening, Aug. 28.

Questions about the projects should be directed to Stephen Noeske, snoeske@bellevuewa.gov or 425-452-5271.
