NW Capitol Campus utility infrastructure repair completion date extended to Dec. 19


The completion date for work to repair utility infrastructure on the Northwest Capitol Campus has been extended to Dec. 19. Cold weather and unexpected discoveries of decades-old abandoned utility infrastructure caused the delay. Once the project is complete:

  • Water Street SW at the Capitol Conservatory will be fully open to traffic.
  • All parking stalls and pedestrian walkways on the North and South diagonals will be open.

Half the employee parking around the Temple of Justice has re-opened. The rest of the stalls are scheduled to open Dec. 10.

Water main replacement and drain line redirection work continues on Southwest Capitol Campus

Work to replace a water main line on 15th Ave. between Capitol Way and Water Street SW continues and will last until Jan. 11. The work has a minimal impact on traffic and can be expected to create some noise during business hours.

A drain line behind the John L. O’Brien Building is being redirected to avoid flooding of an electric vault by water runoff from the parking lot. Work to redirect the drain line began this week. 15th Ave (behind the O’Brien Building) is closed at the construction site. Power to the building will be shut off Saturday, Dec. 8. Visitors and tenants can expect:

  • Some noise due to construction
  • Truck traffic
  • Pedestrian and traffic detours

The work is expected to be completed by Dec. 14.
