Eastside Interceptor Project

Eastside Interceptor Project

That large pipeline you’ve seen along Logan Ave since spring is a by-pass line, part of King County’s Eastside Interceptor project. The interceptor is one of the main sewer lines that bring untreated wastewater to the treatment plant in Renton and the county is lining 3,700 feet to extend its service life. The pipeline is providing a bypass as the county places a lining inside the underground pipe. This week the county reports that about 400 feet of lining remains to be installed. Work is continuing around the clock and is expected to be finished by the end of the year.
