8th Street SW Reconstruction – Phase I Update

8th Street SW Reconstruction – Phase I UpdateJun 11, 2021

The 8th Street SW Reconstruction – Phase 1 project is currently in the second year of a two-year construction project.

The current work consists of replacing storm sewer and reconstructing the two eastbound lanes of 8th Street SW from 34th Ave. SW to 28th Ave. SW.

The Contractor installing storm sewer determined there was a conflict with the proposed storm sewer improvements and the existing underground franchise utilities. The franchise utilities in conflict were aware of the project and did not schedule necessary relocations prior to construction.  The last remaining utility in conflict will be relocated early in the week of June 14.  This will allow the Contractor to resume replacing the storm sewer and paving the two eastbound lanes.  An updated completion date will be available once the utilities have confirmed their relocation.
