Construction is scheduled to begin Nov. 1 for the First Street Low-Impact Development (LID) project. Between State Avenue to east of Cedar Avenue, the city will build new bio-retention facilities that incorporate landscaping and plants to treat and filter storm water runoff that flows into Ebey Slough.
The project, similar to one completed this year on Third Street, will have shallower bio-retention features. Crews will also replace about 775 feet of aging cast iron water main.
During construction, drivers can expect intermittent single-lane closures with flaggers and potential delays at times.
Contractor SRV Construction, Inc., is building this $911,537 project, about half of which is funded by the Washington State Department of Ecology. Construction should be complete in early 2018.
