After a winter weather shutdown, Kirkland’s utility contractor has resumed work on a sewer and water main upgrade project along 1st Street in the Norkirk neighborhood, between 5th and 16th Aves.

The contractor is currently rebuilding sidewalk access ramps along 1st Street and plans to repave the road surface in mid-March, during a favorable weather window.

Both tasks—rebuilding the sidewalk access ramps and repaving the street—require intermittent lane-closures. The contractors are working eight hours between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.

For more information, please visit the project website online.
