Crews started to replace deteriorated water mains in the Sycamore neighborhood this week.

Plans call for the Mosbrucker Excavating crews to replace about 3,500 feet of eight- and 12-inch pipe, as well as valves, water meters and fire hydrants.

Construction hours vary between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. The work requires some temporary lane closures, but access for residents will be provided during construction. Residents and landowners will be notified 48 hours in advance of anticipated water shutdowns.

The project should be completed by September.

Crews also installed a water main beneath East Sunset Way between Sixth Avenue Southeast and Sixth Avenue Northeast in early July.

In April, the City Council selected Mosbrucker Excavating to replace the undersized and deteriorating water lines. The council awarded a $354,000 contract to the Bothell contractor.
