In preparation for the city of Kenmore’s West Sammamish River Bridge replacement project, Puget Sound Energy (PSE) must relocate sections of natural gas main to the north and south of the bridge in Kenmore, which will result in lane closures during construction hours.

Work will begin Sept. 10, and is expected to last 10 weeks, ending in early November. Construction will occur between 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Expect delays due to lane closures on 68th Ave. NE, near the bridge.

The relocations are required in advance of the city of Kenmore’s project to replace the bridge. PSE also needs to relocate overhead and underground electric infrastructure to make way for the new bridge. They will notify impacted customers prior to the work starting. Read more about the city’s project at www.kenmorewa.gov/WestSammamishRiverBridge.

What you can expect:• Traffic will be reduced to one lane each way between 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.• Signs and traffic control flaggers will guide vehicles safely through the work zone.

• Typical excavation and construction noise from trucks and heavy machinery.

• This work should not impact natural gas or electric service in the area.

• Future work to relocate electric infrastructure to accommodate the city’s project.

PSE recognizes this will be inconvenient for drivers and would like to thank the Kenmore community for their patience while crews work to complete this project as quickly and efficiently as possible.
