Evergreen and Casino Intersection to be Impacted During Construction

From the City of Everett: we're almost there! See below for full press release.

The intersection of Evergreen Way and Casino Road will be impacted by a major water main replacement project starting Jan. 2, 2019, until Jan. 10, 2019.

The intersection will be reduced to a single lane controlled by an officer from 6 p.m. until 6 a.m. during this time. A detour for Casino Road, east of the intersection, will be implemented, as needed, to accommodate worker and public safety.
 
Four additional similar events will occur between Jan. 10 and mid-February to allow for testing of the new water main, water main connections and restoration.
 
No closures will occur over weekends. The work is weather dependent, which may impact the dates the work can occur.
 
The South Evergreen Way water main replacement project is expected to be complete by mid-February.

Purpose

Replacing aging main for water quality and water flow improvements. Old unlined mains typically contain mineral and rust deposits that grow within unlined iron pipe. This growth impedes the flow of water and can slough off and create water quality problems. This water main is the main feed to the south of the City of Everett distribution system, making it critical to remain in operation during and after an earthquake.

Project Description

Remove and replace approximately 2,500 feet of 1933 vintage unlined, with 12-inch diameter earthquake resistant pipe system and appurtenances. City staff will install a temporary bypass water main to keep all affected businesses in water during construction.
