Lake Alice Road Southeast - Culvert Replacement

Announcement
›› Lake Alice Road S.E. culvert replacement project postponed until summer 2015. See details on our Bulletins page.

Project No.:  1026731
Project limits:  Lake Alice Road Southeast @ 339th Avenue Southeast
Project type:  Drainage / Fish Passage
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:  Final Design

Status as of August 14, 2014

Lake Alice Road SE culvert replacement project is postponed until summer 2015 because King County was unable to secure all of the property rights necessary for the project. We will continue our efforts to resolve the issue with the property owners so the project can proceed next summer. The county will continue to monitor the culvert through the winter. With the reduction of the road budget King County is more dependent on the public notifying us of problems with the roadway. 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.
