Water, sewer main work set in downtown Sequim

The City of Sequim will resume its work replacing water and sewer mains in downtown Sequim on Monday, Feb. 5.

The work on Washington Street at the intersection of Sunnyside Avenue and along South Sunnyside Avenue from Washington to Maple streets will take place Mondays through Thursdays, 7 p.m.-6 a.m.

The city said in a news release that the start date might change due to inclement weather.

Work is slated for eight to 10 weeks to complete from when the project resumes.

During those times, temporary lane closures on Washington Street at the Sunnyside intersection and a full closure of South Sunnyside between Washington and Maple streets will occur. Driveway access will be closed. Detours and flaggers will be in place to help navigate drivers around the work zone and to alternate driveway access points.

Lanes and driveways will remain open during the day.

If weather permits in March and April, the project will also include sidewalk and curb ramp improvements, as well as final paving from East Maple Street to East Fir Street along Sunnyside Avenue, city staff said. During that time, lane closures and short delays are expected to last 15-30 minutes. Driveway access will remain open.

Residents are encouraged to use alleys or alternate routes for access when possible during construction.

The work will be performed by Jordan Excavating of Port Angeles.
