Lift Station 2 Replacement Project, Westlake Drive SE
The contractor paved the first layer of asphalt on Westlake Drive last week. Over the next two months the contractor will be completing the work on the new lift station. Most of the remaining work will be contained at the lift station site, however, you will see them doing some minor work in the roadway. The contractor will come back in the spring when weather permits to finish the final layer of asphalt for this project. Please note paving of driveway entrances will also occur in the spring when the contractor returns to pave the road.
Over the next two months the contractor will be working to restore any property and landscaping damage caused by construction. If there is anything that you think that needs to be repaired due to the construction and has not been addressed by December, please contact Keven Inman at 360-239-0333.
Lift Station #2 located on Westlake Drive SE in Lacey needs to be replaced. It is the oldest wastewater lift station in the City, constructed in 1970, and has exceeded its life expectancy. There are also issues with limited site access and safety restrictions. The City has purchased property on Westlake Drive SE to construct the new wastewater lift station. The building was demolished and the property cleared for the new wastewater lift station. The City advertised for bids on the lift station and sewer improvements. The City has awarded the construction contract to Pape & Sons Construction of Gig Harbor, WA.
If you have any questions or concerns during construction, please contact the project inspector, Keven Inman at 360-239-0333 or the Construction Manager, Aubrey Collier at 360-438-2639.
