What's happening

Our crews are drilling five holes around the maintenance soil shed to test the soil and monitor groundwater levels to prepare for future construction.


Expect loud noise during drilling hours. Large machinery will be visible, and nearby parking spots will be closed during the work.

All work is weather dependent. The Washington State Department of Enterprise Services has contracted with GeoEngineers of Redmond, Washington for this effort.
