‘Construction Is Now In Full Swing For Rest Of The Year’ On 1st Ave So. Project
The City of Burien says on its website that “construction is now in full swing for the rest of the year,” specifically referirng to the First Ave South Improvement Project Phase II (SW 146th to SW 140th Street).
“DPK, contractor, has installed five large vaults for SCL and done some preparation work for one more large vault in the roadway by the car wash,” reads a post on the website. “They will be working on these next week (Jan. 9). Preparation work includes: potholing and sawcutting. After these, the work moves out of the road way a little to install several smaller vaults. In the next few weeks, trenching work will begin for duct bank installation.”
The city also adds this note:
The construction work zone corridor runs from SW 146th to SW 140th along 1st Avenue South.
In this corridor, the speed limit is now 30 MPH and slower in the immediate work zone area.
Fines are doubled for speeding in the work zone area. So please drive safely, respectfully, and responsibly.
