Description: 
This project will replace two old 4-inch asbestos concrete (AC) pipe replacements in the Idylwood neighborhood. The existing pipes have broken numerous times and, in some cases, have caused local flooding that has damaged street pavement. Consequently, both 178th and 179th Ave NE contain multiple asphalt patches and uplifts.

The AC pipe will be replaced with ductile iron pipe to meet current City water standards. A wastewater forcemain adjacent to the project waterline on 179th Ave NE will be replaced as part of the project. Minor stormwater improvements to both cul-de-sacs are also included in the project scope of work. When all underground work is complete an asphalt overlay will be installed on both streets. 178th and 179th Asbestos Concrete Pipe Replacement Project Location
