Lake Alice Road Southeast - Culvert Replacement

Thursday, Aug. 27, 2015 at 12:45 p.m.: Lake Alice Road SE reopened a day ahead of schedule following a two-month closure for culvert replacement. This project replaced the existing damaged 48" culvert with a 16'x10' box culvert, requiring full 24/7 closure.

Project No.:  1026731
Project limits:  Lake Alice Road SE at 339th Ave SE
Project type:  Drainage / Culvert Improvement
Thomas Bros. Map No.:  599f6

Project description

Monitor condition of pipe, Place emergency response facilities, replace existing culvert.

Why is King County doing this project?

The 48 inch diameter culvert is severely deformed 35 feet below the surface of the road and a portion of the bottom of the pipe has rusted through. Complete collapse of the culvert or its plugging appears imminent. If that occurs the sole access road could become impassable.

Project management phase:  Construction Completed

Status as of September 30, 2015

Construction of the Lake Alice Road SE culvert replacement project began on Jun 22, 2015 and is scheduled to be completed on Aug 28, 2015. The work will require a full closure of the road at the project location. A detour route through the Snoqualmie Ridge community will be opened for public use during this construction. To report any concerns about this or any county road, please call 206-296-8100.

Environmental information

The new culvert’s floor will be designed to mimic a stream bed to allow fish passage, will meet the state standards for fish passage, and improve the natural stream processes. The county will also replace a rock wall at the site.
