Concrete drivers strike slows Kenmore projects
Kenmore construction projects are being affected by the ongoing concrete workers strike in King County. The strike, which began on December 3, 2021, involves over 300 concrete mixers and drivers who have joined to strike against six of the largest cement suppliers in the region.
As a result of the strike, concrete is not available in King County and major infrastructure projects in the region are being significantly impacted, including some of the projects currently in progress in Kenmore:
West Sammamish River Bridge – The concrete strike is affecting the construction schedule for the Bridge project, which could create significant cost increases in the future.
Juanita Drive – The schedule for this project has been impacted by approximately 2 ½ months and counting
Log Boom Park Waterfront – While the contractor has gone to lengths to keep the project schedule moving, including pouring concrete at late hours in the day when delivery was available and procuring concrete from Snohomish County
