Lafayette Street Project:
WSDOT scheduled their walk-thru inspection for June 5th. Federal funding was obtained for a portion of this project so WSDOT must sign off on the complete project prior to acceptance.
Streets and Storm:
The crew focused on right-of-way maintenance (right-of-way mowing and street sweeping) and spraying. Additionally, we continued our annual traffic count program.
The crew performed work along Sequalish Street in conjunction with the Town’s reconstruction project, moving primary and secondary wires. The crew also repaired a transformer damaged by a hit and run in the Madrona area and conducted a small planned outage to replace a transformer that contained high PCBs.
Last Friday’s unplanned power outage was related to faulty wire on Second Street between Champion Street and Martin Street. The wire was repaired, however, this line will need to be replaced in a future project..
The crew completed the final inspection of the sewer main extension in the 2200 block of Lafayette Street, repaired a water service at 65 Puget Drive, completed quarterly water quality testing as required by the State, and worked with the School District on the sewer line serving the 1918 building.
Parks and Grounds:
The crew focused on mowing the parks, activating sprinkler systems, and applying herbicides.
