Emergency sewer work continues on Melrose Ave.

Seattle Public Utilities

Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) is continuing emergency sewer work on the sewer mainline that crosses I-5 from Melrose Avenue to Eastlake Avenue south of East Denny Way. SPU’s contractor recently inserted a new lining into the pipe and is in the process of finishing the project during September and early October.

Once the emergency work is complete there may be a brief pause before street and sidewalk restoration begins. SPU will provide written information to nearby residents and businesses prior to the street restoration.

Brief lane and street closures will be necessary through the end of the project.
