Perkins Lane slide repair begins next week

A private contractor plans to begin next week repairing the slope where Perkins Lane West meets West Raye Street in the Magnolia neighborhood. The crews expect the work will be completed in approximately three months.

During the first month they plan to work mostly at the base of the slope and along the east side of Perkins Lane West and West Raye Street. For the first week to ten days they will be excavating and drilling, resulting in some delays to vehicular traffic. After the drilling is completed, they expect only a few intermittent days, during concrete pours, when traffic may be significantly impacted. At these times the contractor will direct traffic exiting Perkins Lane to use the exits to the north of West Raye Street.

The contractor asks residents to call Les Treal at 206.948.5423 to report any critical concerns or special circumstances.
