NE 36th Street Stormwater Improvement Project Plans

NE 36th Street Stormwater Improvement Project - Notice 9-15-2022

The 2020 Town of Yarrow Point Stormwater Management Plan was published last May. In short, the new study incorporated
known stormwater pipe alignments and sizes into the latest modeling software to identify and prioritize future capital
improvement projects (CIPs) throughout the Town.

A stormwater connection from 92nd Ave NE to NE 36th Street was identified as CIP #1. This project diverts flows along 92nd
(south of NE 36th St) as well as Points Drive NE (east of the round-a-bout) to the storm system in NE 36th Street. As part of
this project, several pieces of the NE 36th Street stormwater infrastructure (ie. catch basins, broken pipes, and cross bores)
will be addressed.

Our current CIP identifies this project as both S-1 ($280,000 for design and construction) and T-1 ($160,000 for full grind
and overlay). There is no power, phone, or cable conversion associated with this project.

The town received two (2) bids prior to the August 10th bid opening deadline:
· B&B Utilities and Excavating LLC $208,275.00
· Kamins Construction, Inc. $315,056.40

  • The low bidder was vetted and determined responsible by Gray & Osborn on August 16, 2022. Shortly thereafter, a
    special council meeting was held in which B&B Utilities and Excavating was awarded the contract.
  • The contractor mobilized to the site on 9/26/22 and he has 40 working days to obtain physical completion (November
    18th). Gray & Osborn is providing inspection services and aiding the Town Engineer with general project management
    activities.

94th Ave NE / NE 38th St/ NE 40th Underground Utility Conversion Project

Yarrow Point Resident,

This letter is to let you know that the Bellevue Utilities Department and the Town of Yarrow Point are following through on some major capital improvements at the following locations:

  • 94th Ave NE: NE 38th St to 92nd Ave NE
  • NE 38th Street: 92nd Ave NE to 94th Ave NE
  • NE 40th Street: 92nd Ave NE to 95th Ave NE

In late summer 2023 the Bellevue Utilities Department will be replacing the water main from 3800 – 4646 94th Ave NE.  In order to accomplish this the utility company will need to install the new system, pressure test it, and then transfer over each individual water service line.  The utility will permanently patch the street once the project is complete.

In 2024 the Town of Yarrow Point will be replacing the stormwater pipe from:

  • 4408 – 4646 94th Ave NE
  • 9200-9400 NE 40th
  • 9200-9300 NE 38th
  • 3838 94th Ave NE – spot repair

At the same time, we will be undergrounding all overhead power, phone, and cable lines on 94th, 38th, and 40th and installing new street lights in the same vicinity of where they currently exist.  Town staff will be working with Gray & Osborne, Inc. in 2023 to determine the best location for parking, pathways, and plants/ shrubs/ trees.  Although we are open to your suggestions anytime, we will be taking official public comment at two separate open houses in early 2023 (date/time/location to be determined) prior to approving a final restoration plan.

Funding for this project is available from several sources, including but not limited to, the Town’s Stormwater Utility, the Town’s Capital Improvement Fund, and monies donated to the Town through the dissolution of Water District #1.

Please note we are currently in the design phase of this project and the following personnel will likely have an increased presence in the project area:

  • Puget Sound Energy – gas/ power
  • Puget Sound Energy IntoLight – street lights
  • Comcast - cable
  • Lumen - phone
  • Bellevue Utilities – sewer/ water
  • Gray & Osborne – civil engineers
  • Tree Solutions - arborist
  • Town Staff – public works/ engineer

Please contact me directly if you would like to discuss how this project might impact your specific situation. I am generally available at Town Hall Monday – Friday from 8am-3:30pm.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE #1

The Town completed all twenty-four (24) individual resident meetings with property owners who need to underground their existing overhead service lines this past July/ August 2022.   If you are one of these property owners you should have received a follow up email in October 2022 with details on the potential scope of work and cost to underground your private service lines.  Please contact me as soon as possible if you have any questions on this task.  If you intend to use WE Electric note they are currently filling spots for the April and October 2023 openings and you can reach out to Jake directly at jake@weelectric.com
