Sheet pile removal at Barton Pump Station July 3 will raise noise level

Information from King County

On Wednesday, July 3, crews will remove a section of steel sheet piles at the Barton Pump Station.

Removing the piles requires the use of a vibrating hammer, which is likely to increase levels of noise and vibration. The crew will be closely monitoring vibration levels to minimize disruption and protect against property damage.

The pile removal is expected to be completed by 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 3.

Crews will need to drive additional piles in the near future. King County will notify the community prior to the upcoming pile driving work.
