[ARCHIVED] Construction alert: North Wetmore Stormwater Separation Project


On May 29, work will begin on the installation of a stormwater collection system in your
neighborhood (see map here). Thomco Construction will do the work. Normal work
hours will be 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The purpose of the collection system is to minimize basement and surface flooding by
removing stormwater flows from the combined sewer system. The project will also
benefit the environment by reducing overflows into the Snohomish River.

Construction will begin on Wetmore Avenue at 5th Street and move south to the
northern border of Everett Community College. When that is complete, city crews will
replace a water main between 5th Street and 7th Street. The contractor will then restore
that portion of roadway, while a second crew installs the remainder of the collection
system on Wetmore, from north of 8th Street to 11th Street.

Due to the nature of the work, there will be noise and occasional traffic and parking
restrictions. Signs will posted advising motorists of traffic revisions and flaggers will be
on hand to assist local residents.

We apologize in advance for any inconvenience. We expect this project will take about a
year to complete. We will send additional mailings to keep you advised of the work.

For more information, contact Tom Fuchs, Public Works project manager, at 425-257-
8931 or Once work begins, you can also contact Scott Wilcox,
Thomco Construction project foreman, at 425-319-2677 or

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we complete this necessary project.
