Expect delays as flaggers manage traffic flow around construction crews installing new catchbasins and other upgrades to Edmonds’ downtown storm drainage system. The area had been subject to flooding in heavy rain situations, as we captured here in August 2013.
Current construction activity is concentrated on 4th Avenue South between Main and Walnut Streets. According to crews, this phase of the work should take “about three weeks.”
This is just the first phase of storm drainage work; expect to see more projects occurring downtown, according to Public Works Director Phil Williams.
