Stormwater schedule changes at N 175th Street west of Aurora
Buried utility lines were discovered that conflicted with scheduled trenching and installation of underground stormwater systems on N 175th Street west of Aurora. Frontier and Comcast will temporarily move buried lines this week or the week of February 27. A single eastbound lane on N 175th Street will be closed and reopened in the evening. Trenching will begin as soon as lines are relocated.

Joint utility trenching nearing N 185th Street
Crews resumed installing the joint utility trench on the west side of Aurora just south of N 185th Street and will continue north toward N 185th Street. Crews expect to begin trenching across N 185th Street the week of February 28. This is expected to take approximately two weeks. Traffic on N 185th Street will be reduced to one lane in each direction and will be assisted by flaggers and police officers. Access to Firlands Way from Aurora and N 185th Street will be limited; nearby businesses were informed about traffic routing in the area.

Curb grading and installation on N 175th Street east of Aurora
Grading for curbs continues on the south side of N 175th Street east of Aurora and crews will begin pouring curbs.

Pouring sidewalks and driveways on the west side of Aurora
Sidewalk forming and pouring will continue for many weeks progressing north on the west side of Aurora north of N 165th Street. Crews will continue pouring driveways and will work directly with businesses to provide access. Please drive carefully as driveway access may periodically change during this work.

Property restoration, irrigation, rain garden installation
Crews will continue restoring properties on the west side of Aurora between N 165th Street and N 175th Street. Crews will also begin installing topsoil, irrigation and rain gardens.

Curbs and paving preparation (west side of Aurora between N 175th and N 182nd Streets)
Grading for curbs continues to progress north. Crews plan to continue pouring curbs between N 175th and N 182nd Streets and will begin grading the work zone in preparation for paving. Paving between N 175th and N 182nd Streets is tentatively scheduled to occur at night the week of February 28.

Electrical conversions
The project team continues to work with Seattle City Light (SCL) to adjust and finalize underground conduit and utility vaults on Aurora. Marshbank has made good progress installing individual underground electrical services to businesses between N 165th and N 175th Streets and will begin installing services north of N 175th Street. SCL will install necessary utility poles on private properties. After final approval is received for these systems, SCL will convert power from overhead to underground.

SCL has already been converting power to underground systems for several properties on the corridor. SCL will work with businesses to identify appropriate times for cutting and converting power to underground systems. Old utility poles will be removed once work is completed.

Stormwater work at N 185th Street and Midvale Avenue
Stormwater work at N 185th Street and Midvale Avenue was postponed and is now expected to begin this week or the week of February 27. Work will take approximately one week to complete. Traffic may be reduced to a single lane in the westbound direction.
