WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW?

Dayton Street Utility Improvements Project Phase 2 construction schedule

Following the completion of paving and striping on Dayton Street between 3rd Ave and 5th Ave this fall, the City of Edmonds has been engaging in conversations with the contractor and the public to identify ways to further accelerate the schedule and further minimize impacts on the community. As a result of those conversations, we are proposing adjusting the Phase 2 start date to January 2020 since the contractor will be able to start work earlier than they planned and it will decrease construction impacts during the summer of 2020.

Weather dependent, moving the start date to early 2020 will result in Phase 2 construction activities wrapping up as early as mid summer 2020, rather than the original wrap-up date of late October 2020.  This will allow Edmonds residents to enjoy our downtown without construction impacts in mid/late summer 2020 and to lessen impacts to festivals taking place after that time.

We want your feedback on the construction schedule!
Please email us with questions or comments about the proposed Phase 2 construction schedule at daytonproject@edmondswa.gov.

As a refresher, Phase 2 of the Dayton Street Utility Improvements Project will replace aging and undersized utilities along Dayton Street from 5th Ave S to 9th Ave S. Improvements will include:  

    ·   Adding stormwater pipe capacity to reduce flooding downtown during                                      heavy rainstorms
    ·   Sewer pipe repairs and replacing potable water pipes that are nearing the end                       of their lifespan
    ·   Road Restoration and replacing the 5th Ave and Dayton Street intersection and                       concrete crosswalks
    ·   Upgrading curb ramps to be ADA-accessible at the intersections of Dayton                                Street and 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th Avenues
    ·   Adding a sidewalk along the south side of Dayton Street from 7th Ave to 8th                            Ave, where there currently is no sidewalk.

Upcoming construction activities 
In preparation for Phase 2, limited low-impact work will occur early December 2019 to prepare the site for pipe excavation and replacement during the next phase of construction. This work will include digging shallow trenches to make improvements to the existing utilities. Associated traffic impacts are expected to be limited but may include some minor flagging along Dayton Street. We will follow up with more information as this work is scheduled.

Community Transit Routes 116, 130, and 416 have returned to regular routes

Community Transit Routes 116, 130, and 416 have returned to their regular routes along Dayton Street between 2nd and 5th Avenues. These routes will likely reroute off Dayton Street during Phase 2 construction. We will continue to send updates on alternative routes as they are determined. For up-to-date details about bus routes, please visit Community Transit’s rider alerts page.

Phase 1 (May-October 2019) and Phase 2 (2020)

Phase 1 of construction (Dayton Street from 3rd Ave S to 5th Ave S) will begin on May 13, 2019 and is anticipated to be completed in Fall 2019. Work during this phase will occur mostly between 3rd Ave S and 5th Ave S. Some sewer pipe rehabilitation work between 6th and 9th may be part of phase 1.

Traffic and pedestrian impacts

Phase 2 of construction  (Dayton Street from 5th Ave S to 9th Ave S) will begin as early as Spring 2020 and last into Fall 2020
