Rehabilitation of six sewer manholes to begin Jan. 25 in Lakewood

Construction work to preserve the life of six sewer collection manholes in Lakewood will begin Jan. 25.

Crews will replace corroded interior iron drop structures, install new manhole steps, and rehabilitate walls, shelves, and channels. Additionally, a protective coating will be applied to all interior concrete surfaces.

Construction is expected to take place between 7:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays through the end of February. The work is not expected to cause traffic delays. Motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians should use caution in areas where work is being performed.

The six manholes are located at:

  • Intersection of Dalwood Road Southwest and Foster Street Southwest
  • 10937 Lake Steilacoom Drive SW
  • Intersection of Lake Steilacoom Drive Southwest and Lagoon Lane Southwest
  • 11407 Gravelly Lake Drive SW
  • Intersection of Gravelly Lake Drive Southwest and North Street Southwest
  • 12919 Lake City Blvd SW
Sewer customers in areas where work is to be performed may be notified and asked to reduce their flows while work is being performed.

Realm, Inc. is the contractor. The construction contract cost is approximately $141,000, with funding coming from the Pierce County Public Works sewer construction fund.

Pierce County Public Works inspected 565 of the more than 16,000 manholes in Pierce County in 2015. The six manholes were selected for this project using criteria developed by Pierce County that conforms to the National Manhole Assessment Certification Program.
