Sunnyside Avenue construction set to finish on April 27

The final pavement work along Sunnyside Avenue began on Monday, April 23, and is set to finish on Friday, April 27, reports staff with the City of Sequim.

Jordan Excavating of Port Angeles crew members will work between 7:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. from Fir Street to Washington Street on Sunnyside during the week.

Drivers can expect temporary closures and short delays 15-30 minutes, city staff said.

City Engineer Matt Klontz said the Sunnyside Avenue/Washington Street intersection and the section of Sunnyside Avenue between Washington Street and Maple Street will finish at night from 7 p.m.-6 a.m. Drivers can expect temporary lane closures and detours while the work is completed, city staff said.

Construction started last October to connect new water and sewer lines to piping installed along South Sunnyside Avenue a few years ago.

The project also creates more water and sewer capacity for new development and incoming waste from the Carlsborg Sewer Project, city staff said. The new sewer and water mains replace 70-year-old lines and increase piping to 18 inches and 8 inches in diameter.

Klontz previously said construction costs about $1.155 million with a portion, about $514,000, financed from the Carlsborg Sewer Project through an interlocal agreement with Clallam County.
