Water main punctured on 145th and 8th NE

Friday, January 21, 2011

From our NewsPartner, The Seattle Times:
A water main broke just before 2 p.m. Friday at Northeast 145th Street and 12th Avenue Northeast near the Jackson Park Golf Course, according to Seattle Public Utilities.

SPU has shut down part of the street between Eighth and 15th Avenues Northeast, with only one lane open each way, SPU spokeswoman Ingrid Goodwin said.

Goodwin said a construction crew with Pilchuck Contractors punctured a 30-inch water main about 9 feet underground. She said SPU would investigate what caused the 4-inch puncture.

Restoring the pipe will take several hours and will affect the evening commute, she said.
