Project replaces, upsizes 40-year-old water main for growing community
Work to build a new water main along 83rd Avenue Northeast begins Monday. Construction of the 1.2-mile-long project will start at Soper Hill Road near 29th Place Northeast. It includes building a new water main, valves and services in the southbound lane of 83rd Avenue Northeast, followed by pavement grinding, overlay and new road markings there. The project ends just north of Sunnyside School Road and is expected to be complete in early December.
Residents and travelers on 83rd (in the Soper Hill area of southeast Marysville) can expect single-lane closures with flaggers and potential delays at times.
The new water main replaces the current one built in 1976 and offers more capacity to serve the growing southeast Marysville community. Marysville, the second largest city in Snohomish County, was the fastest growing city in the state in 2015.
This $1.18 million project was included in the city’s 2017-18 biennial budget. Performing the work is contractor Reece Construction.
