Summary

Work to repair a sewer line break in Bellevue is set to begin on Oct. 26 and may take up to three days to complete.

Story

King County sewer utility crews will begin work in Bellevue on Thursday, Oct. 26, to permanently repair a pipeline break near intersection of Lake Hills Boulevard and 156th Avenue Southeast.

Work is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and will require temporary closure of the eastbound lane of Lake Hills Boulevard between 155th Avenue and 156th Avenue. The bicycle lane and sidewalk will also be closed during work hours. The repair work may take up to three days to complete.

Flaggers will be on site to assist with traffic during work hours. Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are advised to use caution and expect short delays while traveling in the area.

The sewer line break occurred on Sunday, Oct. 22, and resulted in a small sewage overflow onto private property. King County crews quickly responded, stopped the overflow and completed cleanup of the property that evening.
