Sewer work to close parts of 114th Ave., Meydenbauer Beach Park

Two major sewer-work projects will close parts of a busy road near the Interstate and a popular park for several months each.

114th Avenue Southeast between Main Street and Southeast Sixth Street will be closed to through traffic from Dec. 26 through mid-January to increase capacity for the Wilburton area and replace aging infrastructure.

The public will be able to access local businesses, sidewalks on the road and the Wilburton park-and-ride via Southeast Eighth Street. To access I-405, commuters should use Northeast Fourth Street or Southeast Eighth Street via 112th Avenue Southeast.

Additionally, work to replace aging pipes along Lake Washington will close some parts of Meydenbauer Beach Park and the Bellevue Marina parking lot.

Work to install the new sewer line and a below-grade pump station will begin on Jan. 3 and is scheduled to be completed in May 2017.

The project will be completed before work is slated to begin on a Meydenbauer Park improvement project, which will “offer a restored shoreline, pedestrian pier, swim beach, beach house, play and picnic areas, shoreline promenade and restored stream.”

The sewer work will close the park shoreline and the swimming beach area. The upper parking lot and walking trails north of the construction will remain open, not counting the occassional temporary closures. The Bellevue marina will remain open during construction but with limited access.
