Concrete Work around Utility Cover at Meridian Avenue N and N 34th Street

The Seattle Times submitted a number of reader questions about transportation related work around the city.  Reader comment:  “A manhole cover that partially blocked the intersection for close to a week while it dried, only to become very cracked within weeks of job completion.”

This work was completed seven years ago in accordance with pavement opening and restoration rules.  While there is a slight settling of the concrete, the work is structurally sound and no rework is planned.  We will continue to monitor it for any further settling.
