Message from Mayor David Baker - Winter Weather

Thank you Kenmore community for being so patient and supportive during this very unusual winter weather!

Neighbors are coming together to help each other.

Bridge Project Impacted by Federal Government Shutdown

Kenmore, WA – The City of Kenmore would like to inform the community of potential impacts to the West Sammamish River Bridge Replacement Project due to the current federal government shutdown.

The bridge carries southbound traffic over the Sammamish River on 68th Ave NE and was constructed in the 1930s. Due to the age of the bridge, weight restrictions went into effect in 2014 and the City began design for a new bridge in 2015. As the project moves from design to construction, we expected to advertise the project now and start construction in Spring 2019.

What is going on near the Sammamish Bridge and Rhododendron Park?

I see a lot of construction vehicles in this area. What is going on?

Northshore Utility District (NUD) contractors are currently working on a sewer main relocation project next to and east of the Sammamish River Bridge on the south side of the river/68th Ave NE. This work is to prep for the bridge replacement that will start sometime in mid-2019.

Did the City know this upcoming sewer work would be done when they were designing and constructing the boardwalk and float?
