East Link Construction Begins at Enatai Beach Park


Enatai Beach Park Construction Notice

Updated 10/23/17

Sound Transit’s contractor, Kiewit-Hoffman, began mobilizing construction equipment at Enatai Beach Park in mid-October 2017. 

Crews will use a portion of the existing park and parking area as a construction staging area for seismic retrofit work and light rail construction that will occur along the I-90 roadway above. This work will reduce the structures’ vulnerability in a seismic event and prepare the East Channel Bridge for future East Link construction and operation.

12 parking spaces may be unavailable for six months. Access to remaining parking spaces and to Enatai Beach Park will be maintained throughout construction.

Parking spaces and the Enatai Beach Park grounds will be restored to existing condition once work is complete.  Work is anticipated to last for up to two years.

What to expect:

Work hours will be Monday – Friday: 7 a.m. – 5 p.m.; Saturday: 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.

 Construction vehicles and crew members entering and exiting the work zone during typical work hours. Approximately 20 trucks daily will be accessing the site via approved haul routes.

 Traffic control will be in place. Pedestrians, vehicles and cyclists should follow signed detours and flaggers to safely access your destination.

 Construction fencing, construction trailers, lighting and signage delineating the construction site will be in place.

 Some parking spaces may be unavailable for six months. Limited parking will remain available throughout construction and visitors will be able to access the park.

 Intermittent lane closures along 108th Avenue SE. Please follow signed detours and flaggers to safely access your destination.

 Potential intermittent noise and vibration from construction activities may be noticeable.
