Barton CSO Update: Rain Garden construction is underway

Information from King County

Construction of the roadside rain gardens for the Barton CSO Control project is underway across the neighborhood. Eight blocks will have roadside rain gardens built this year, with seven blocks to follow next year. The seven blocks scheduled for 2015 construction will see some activity this construction season, specifically installation of the deep wells at the southern end of the blocks.

To keep the neighborhood up to date on street by street activity and construction impacts, the project website will be updated weekly (

The goal will be to update the website every Monday afternoon, but there may be some Tuesday updates depending on what’s happening with the construction crews.
