Installing and Relining Pipe along 97th Ave SE

Single lane alternating traffic on west side of 97th Ave SE.Crews will reline an existing sewer pipe along 97th Ave S.E., north of Southeast 34th Street. Relining the pipe will extend its service life without needing to fully replace it.

A new sewer pipe will be installed along 97th Ave S.E., south of Southeast 34th Street. The new pipe will connect to pipe being installed underneath the I-90 Trail. This pipe installation will use the open cut method. For more details on open cut pipe installation, check out our open cut factsheet.

Upgrading Lift Station 11 at Fruitland Landing
Lift Station 11 is located along the Mercer Island shoreline at Fruitland Landing. It connects the City of Mercer Island's wastewater system to King County's regional wastewater system.

Crews will install bigger pumps and an upgraded electrical system in the station. This will increase the amount of wastewater flow that can travel through the lift station.

The park at Fruitland Landing will be closed to the public for approximately four months to ensure everyone’s safety while crews work in the small space.

What to expect:

  • Emergency vehicle access will be maintained.
  • There will be noise, dust, and vibrations typical of an active construction project.
  • Garbage, recycling, composting, mail and delivery service will be maintained.
