Andover Park East Critical Infrastructure Replacement
Beginning in September of 2016, the City of Tukwila will replace critical infrastructure on Andover Park East at Strander and Baker Boulevards. It is expected that this work will be completed in the spring of 2017. This project includes upgrades and improvements to water and sewer lines installed in the 1960s that are insufficient for the area and are past their useful life. The new, larger water and sewer lines are long-term investments that will keep up with future growth. Once the underground utilities are complete, Andover Park East will be repaved and ADA ramps will be installed at the intersections. Affected streets will be open during construction but the travel lanes may be reduced to accommodate construction-related activities.

Project Update – December 2016
The Andover Park East (APE) Water Main & Sewer Replacements project is currently in the holiday shopping season shutdown, which will last until January 2. Prior to the shutdown, a little over 500 feet of new sewer piping was installed. This was enough to be able to provide new sewer capacity for the Washington Place Development. The new sewer line has been tied into the sewer manhole at Washington Place so that the new line is ready to accept sewer discharges when it opens in 2017.
In preparation for the high traffic flow during the holiday shopping season, all construction equipment was removed from the site, and temporary asphalt pavement was placed in areas where pavement was removed for the piping installation.
Starting early in January 2017, the work will recommence and will generally be done at night to minimize disruptions to daytime street traffic. Additional sewer piping will be installed from the current stopping point at Washington Place to just north of Evans Black Drive. New water main piping will be installed along APE from Strander Blvd all the way to Tukwila Parkway. In addition, a few hundred feet of existing of sewer piping in APE will be rehabilitated using a re-lining process. The final stage of the project will involve repaving Andover Park East from the Strander Blvd intersection to the Tukwila Parkway intersection, providing new traffic lane markings, and installing new concrete curb ramps at all crosswalks.
Due to some delays, the work is now scheduled to be complete in late spring or early summer 2017. We appreciate your patience during the project and we will work hard to minimize any inconveniences caused by the construction.
