Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad (BNSF) will be making repairs to rock seawalls and track embankments from Carkeek Park in Seattle north to Everett.
BNSF's base of operations will be near Port of Edmonds at the rail house on West Dayton Street.
This project will repair defects in the existing rock seawalls and embankments by filling existing void spaces with grout. All repairs will be made by track-based equipment with a boat acting as a spotter to identify the next repair location.
The schedule for these repair efforts is weather dependent, but expected to continue through the summer. The contractor for BNSF, Advanced American Construction, will provide updates during the project and the City of Edmonds will continue to pass that information on to Edmonds Patch.
This work will start in Seattle and work northward. It is not expected to be in the Edmonds area for several weeks.
