West Commodore Way detour in place for new sewer pipe installation

A section of West Commodore Way just west of the Salmon Bay Railroad Bridge is closed as crews are installing the new sewer pipe underneath the waterway between Magnolia and Ballard.

According to Seattle Public Utilities, the contractor is working on a site on the 3500 block of West Commodore Way, and traffic will be detoured around the site in a loop along West Fort Street, Gilman Ave W, West Government Way and Texas Way. They expect to be finished sometime next week. Local access will be maintained.

The Pump Station 43 Emergency Sewer Force Main Replacement project is to replace the sewer main that runs from Ballard to Magnolia west of the Ballard Locks, which was found to be damaged in the fall of 2017. The pipe, which they discovered was severely cracked, was then bypassed to prevent additional sewage from flowing into the Ship Canal. Rather than repair it, they Seattle Public Utilities decided to replace the entire force main to protect the waterway.

Connect it right up to City Hall and flush all the smug, corrupt liars and operatives out of office.

Thanks for your service.

Don’t know how far along the design work is but they should size it for Mike O’Brien’s ego.

I guess this is the perfect topic for all of our local shitheads to slime their way through the comment section. Mostly I mean Uncle Buck. Because he’s a shithead.

I saw your buddy Richard Recktenwald outside the library yesterday.
He looked real shaky; tappity, tappy, real herky, jerky… like he needed hit of something.
Stay safe out there!
