Part of the main access road into Carkeek Park is closed as crews repair a water line. Repairs should be done on Friday.
The road past the Environmental Learning Center is closed while crews work to repair the pipe. Carkeek Park is located in northwest Seattle at 950 NW Carkeek Park Rd.
To protect public safety, the road to the lower meadow, beach and wetland areas is closed to traffic. Pedestrians can still access these areas via trails from the upper parking lot at NW 100th Pl. Flaggers will be in place during work hours to direct traffic.
The pipe supplies potable water needed to operate King County’s Carkeek Pump Station and Wet Weather Treatment Facility. Crews are working to repair the leak and anticipate completing work by the end of the day on Friday, Jan. 17. Affected areas of the road will be repaired and repaved.
