Phalen Creek Storm Tunnel Rehab
Portions of the Phalen Creek Storm Tunnel system are in need of rehabilitation. The rehab work is to be completed in 3 project phases (2016 – 2019).
The main work site is located between 4th Street and the Kellogg (3rd) Street Bridge, and is planned to be utilized through the Spring of 2019.
The rehab work is mostly underground, and includes constructing a reinforced concrete liner inside the existing tunnel, as the existing tunnel floor and roof are in poor condition.
Phase 1 project work began in the Fall of 2016, and included construction of a temporary paved trail to maintain pedestrian and bike traffic around the work site.
The temporary trail and chain-link fencing (to secure the work site) are to remain in-place through the Spring of 2019. Phase 1 work was completed in October of 2017.
Phase 2 project work is planned to begin in November of 2017 and be completed in the Spring of 2018.
Phase 3 project work is planned to begin in the Fall of 2018 and be completed in the Spring of 2019.
