Delays possible during Lincoln Street work

Port Angeles crews to repair 100-year-old sewer main

PORT ANGELES — Crews tonight will begin repairs on a 100-year-old sewer main buried under Lincoln Street.

Drivers can expect minor delays at the intersection of Lincoln and Eighth streets overnight today and Wednesday from 8:30 p.m. to 7 a.m., city officials said.

Crews will access the manhole in the intersection of Eighth and Lincoln streets, which should not close at any time during the project, Public Works and Utilities Director Thomas Hunter said.

Access to businesses and other properties in the area will remain open.

“We will patch the sewer main without excavating the roadway by using a trenchless liner system,” city officials said in a Friday announcement.

“This repair is part of the city’s broader initiative to reduce the risk of costly sewer main breaks by rehabbing aging sewer infrastructure using cost-effective, trenchless technologies.”

The work along Lincoln Street will take place in multiple phases.

Drivers are asked to observe traffic signs and follow the direction of flaggers if present.

Parking restrictions might be in place.

“You can expect noise typical of vehicles and air compressors,” the city announcement said.
