The City of Edmonds says that the first phase of the Dayton Street Utility Improvements Project is expected to be completed on schedule by the end of October. Crews will be returning for phase 2 next year to continue replacing the utilities under Dayton Street from 5th Avenue South to 9th Avenue South.
Crews are planning to begin repaving Dayton Street between 3rd Avenue and 5th Avenue as early as the last two weeks of September. During this work there may be increased noise and vibration along Dayton Street, as well as some short-term driveway restrictions, the city says. The city will be contacting owners of affected driveways on Dayton Street in the coming weeks to talk about plans for paving and answer questions or concerns.
In addition, to decrease construction impacts for phase 2 in 2020 and improve work flow during that period, the city says to expect some “low-impact work” — mainly trenchless with associated spot excavations — on Dayton between 7th and 9th in November and December. This work will require some construction traffic control resulting in minor delays, but traffic will remain two-way and no intersection closures are expected.
